Youth Action Council
Youth Action Council is a full school year after school group that focuses on community service, leadership, and making a difference in the world around us.
Students in the group set their own goals and agendas to better our community. This group is full for the 2017-18 school year, but applications will be accepted for limited openings in the Fall.

Teens in Action- Food Bank
Every Tuesday during the school year from 2:30-3:30pm   Grades 7-12     FREE
Students will sign up for a one month commitment, please only sign up for only one month during the school year so that others are able to participate.
This volunteer opportunity gives youth the chance to sort food donations, stock the shelves, and clean and organize the food bank. Volunteers will report to the Town Hall directly after school. Snack will be provided. Space is limited for this group and pre-registration is required, so don’t wait to sign up!

Open Youth Center
Open Youth Center provides a safe, drug and alcohol free drop-in center for middle school aged kids. The Youth Center is a great space where kids feel safe and comfortable and have the opportunity to “just be kids” for a while. While at the Youth Center, we hope that they feel connected to one or more of our staff members and look to us as role models and sounding boards, should they need that. Open Youth Center is staffed by our full-time program coordinators as well as 4 part time youth center supervisors.
During Open Youth Center, kids can have a snack, play pool, air hockey, video games, basketball and more. We also have crafts, spaces to relax, and a reading/homework area. Weather permitting, we offer organized activities on the Green.
While at the Youth Center, we expect all participants to:~
  • Be Honest
  • Be kind: no name calling, teasing or bullying
  • Sign in and out
  • Clean up after themselves
  • Be Respectful: respect YOURSELF,
respect others and treat our things
as if they were your own~
Please remember, attending the Youth Center is a privilege and not meeting behavioral expectations will have consequences. Repeated or severe violations may result in a suspension from the Youth Center.   
Pre-registration is not required, but is highly preferred for the safety and well-being of all participants. On-line registration must be completed within one week after the first time the youth attends the Youth Center.
The hours for Open Youth Center are:
Grades 7 & 8:  Mondays
Grades 6:  Wednesdays
Time:  2:00pm – 4:00pm
