Student Hangout Listings
 
It is a known fact that in a local community, there is a need for young people to have a positive environment to go to when schools knock off for the day or during the summer months. The local police have said it significantly reduces the problems of public loitering, theft and general mischief for students without supervision. Right now “after school hangouts” or engagement activities are proving to be a great way to connect with local teenagers in our community. Listed below are some "hangouts" in our community. They are hosted by various youth organizations and by the faith community.
