*This is an example of various programs that we have run or are currently running; therefore, not all the programs listed are current. In general, all the programs run on a seasonal basis.
The Thursday Night Chill
Every Thursday night, the Center opens from 9:15 PM until 11:15 PM, as a safe supervised place for teens and young adults to hang out with their peers and our professional staff. On Thursday nights, there’s a rotation of ‘Open Mic’ Nights, Concert series by Crossroads teens, paint nights, make your own sushi, and various other events. During the winter months when the teens tend to gather more inside, we also provide hot soup.
In addition to the nightly programs that we offer, there is always space for the each teen to do their own thing, aside from the main program that is being run that night, such as interact with his or her friends, play an instrument, watch TV, play video games, or talk to a social worker.
