Planned Activities with a Purpose

Safe, fun, and productive environment to help teens grow.

 

by Lauren Gooch - September 20, 2019

School is back in session, and so is the Wellsboro Teen Center! Since October 1999, the WTC has been impacting the lives of youth in our community. In 2008, the teen center moved to its new location at 1 Brewery Lane in Wellsboro. Its location is within walking distance of Rock L. Butler Middle School, making it the perfect destination for middle school students in grades 5-8. Students can use their facilities to play games, do homework, or simply hang out with friends. Each day, the teen center is open from 3-5pm, and on Tuesdays, there is a special youth service at 5:30pm and a meal served at 6pm. The volunteers are committed to providing a safe, fun, and productive environment to help teens grow socially, academically, and spiritually.

“That’s our mission,” says Pastor Carl Linscott. “To make sure that our children in our community get all the support they need to live a successful life.”

To provide academic support, the teen center has tudors available to help students with homework. There is also a full computer lab where they can do homework and print out papers.

Once homework is complete, teens can enjoy a multitude of games and activities including ping pong, air hockey, pool, four square and basketball, just to name a few. At 4pm, everyone gathers for a devotional and a Biblical message from one of the leaders.

As a completely volunteer-based facility, they are always looking for passionate volunteers who are great role models. If you are unable to volunteer, but would be willing to donate money or food items, that would be a huge help. Approximately 40 teens come to the center each day, so anything you are able to contribute would mean so much. All monetary donations go directly to helping the teens by supplying food, electric, heat, school supplies like pencils and backpacks, etc. Another way to help is to pray for their ministry and for all those who enter the teen center.

To fill out a volunteer application or to donate, contact Pastor Carl Linscott at 570-439-3185. You can also learn more about the teen center by visiting their website at wellsborotc.org.
