The NFK facility now has a designated Teen Center classroom for grades 7-12. Participating middle and high school students receive academic tutoring and homework assistance. They also participate in classes that teach computer information technology, career development and life skills, as well as college preparation and youth entrepreneurship. As this new program continues to be expanded it will include opportunities to focus on responsible decision-making, teen pregnancy prevention and drug/alcohol prevention.
Teens took a field trip in our new bus to Muggly’s Bowling Alley in Toledo last week — a reward for their effort and time put in to volunteering for Kids Zone and at the Depoe Bay Salmon Bake. Part of the cost was defrayed by teens who donated their tips from the Bake to Kids Zone!
