ABOUT

The Redding Teen Center was established in 2022 to support the youth in the City of Redding and outlying areas. The Teen Center serves teens ages 13-17 (and 18 if still enrolled in high school). The Teen Center engages youth in activities that contribute toward their growth into responsible and caring members of our community. Through our programs, teens learn to identify their strengths and build upon those strengths when making decisions and personal choices.

The Redding Teen Center provides a second home to many youths in our community, offering leadership, recreation, artistic, and educational programs, and activities.The Redding Teen Center is a program of Pathways to Hope for Children.
