Teen Center at the Centennial Recreation Center
The Centennial Recreation Teen Center is designed to be a safe place for teens to hang out and have fun. We encourage fun and at the same time promote growth and education.
Work with teens 12-18 years old, many of who could use positive, non-violent adult models. From Homework Help to Tournaments, plus interesting, helpful workshops on Fridays and Saturdays. Many different recreational or educational activities keep teens involved!
Needs this semester:
Gavilan students can help recruit teens to the Center with fun, exciting events (not a good option for Conflict Resolution students). They can help with homework from 4-6:30 on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, and assist with homework or lead activities or workshops 3-8 p.m. Fridays and 11 a.m. -1 p.m. on Saturdays. During opening hours, Gavilan students can help with theTeen Center Snack Shack.
Possible workshop topics:
art, writing, conflict resolution skills, Gandhi and You, good nutrition, study skills, and more.
Who should apply:
Anyone over age 18 who likes working with youth, and can be a positive presence. Gavilan students with special skills may wish to teach or share their skills, but must plan and schedule to do so at least a month in advance and must be reliably able to follow through.
TB tests and fingerprinting paid by the agency are required for this work; fingerprints are done in San Martin. Gavilan students who have been convicted of a crime are unlikely to be able to work at the Teen Center. Limited number of Gavilan students at a time. ORIENTATIONS will be at 5 pm. on either Friday Sept. 18 or Monday Sept. 21 OR Friday Sept. 25. Please plan to attend if you wish to work at this agency.
Interested students MUST attend orientation. Employees at the City of Morgan Hill are very dedicated, caring and occupied in providing valuable services. Please respect staff time by calling and making appointments, arriving on time, and keeping your discussion brief and concise. Please call ahead if you are not able to make your appointment or have an emergency which prevents you from arriving on time. Need help with math tutoring, Snack Shack
