Teen Program 2020-2021
The KHCC Teen Program serves over 200 Bronx youth ages 12-21 annually. Our center based program provides a hot meal nightly and is open until 9 pm to ensure safety and consistency for young people who may lack this structure at home. Our philosophy is to positively impact participants lives by partnering with families, providing empowerment through decision making, building positive relationships, and encouraging youth to take initiative. The program's success is based on educational support, college access, leadership development, service opportunities, job training and internships, and skills building through technology, groups, arts, wellness initiatives, and recreation.
Teen Program is open to youth between the ages of 12 and 21.
The Tween Program offers youth in 6th to 8th grade activities tailored to their age group. Older tweens stay later into the evening for Teen Program.
The College Directions Program provides Bronx high school students with help applying to colleges and universities. All College Directions youth may participate in the wider Teen Center activities.
