About the club:

Our doors are open Tuesday through Friday from 1:30 to 5:30 PM offering a safe positive environment for young people of all race, religious and ethnic groups. Programs and activities at the teen center are designed to enhance self-esteem and help young people make appropriate and satisfying choices in their physical, educational, personal, social , emotional, vocational and spiritual lives.

We believe youth are community resource to be cared for, not squandered. Our trained professional staff provide positive adult mentors and role models. Nationally recognized programs help young people succeed in school, stay healthy, learn important life skills, pursue interests in the hearts and sports, and explore vocational and career choices.

The teen center provides a place for young people to participate in the life of the community and develop a sense of belonging while growing into responsible adults.

Our mission:

We are youth and adults working together to ensure that the city of Augusta nurtures all of its children. We support the ideal that each child should have the following basics in their lives:

* A caring adult or mentor
* Safe places in which to live, play, and grow
* An appropriate and marketable education
* A healthy start and access to medical care
* Opportunities to be part of the community

Guiding principles.

* Youth are a community resource and have strengths to be developed
* Change occurs when youth are actively involved in their development
* Youth-to-youth contacts and referrals are often more effective than adult interventions
* Education training and one-on-one coaching is important
* All effective changes come from local ownership of issues
* Activities must be culturally sensitive
* Activities of Capital Kids/Augusta Communities for Children will be based on appropriate scientific research principles of youth development
