Community Spotlight: Mattapan Teen Center

The Boys and Girls Club of Boston (BGCB) has added a twelfth club and brought new life into Mattapan’s teen scene. Just a few days ago BGCB celebrated the grand opening of their newest location at 10 Hazelton Street and their first ever Teen Center. You might recognize the Teen Center as a bright and welcoming version of what used to be the Mattapan branch of the Boston Public Library. Built in the same building but completely redone in teen-friendly colors, the Teen Center sports so many fun features designed just for youth ages 13 to 18:

  • A common area with vaulted ceilings and comfy couches
  • A study space for doing homework and reading
  • A kitchen
  • A technology room
  • A music studio
  • A performing arts area used for theater as well as fitness activities

The Teen Center is your child’s destination for after-school fun. Any teen can join the fun that over 125 youth will be enjoying at the Teen Center every evening. The Club is open from 1pm to 8pm Tuesdays-Fridays and 11am to 7pm on Saturdays. Contact the Center for more information on all the wonderful programs open to your teen today: 617-533-9055.
