Thomasville Teen Center

Our Thomasville Teen Center strives to make every day count for members, especially those who need us most. Our goal is to ensure that all children ages 13-18 who walk through our doors achieve academic success in school, develop good character and citizenship, and live healthier, more active lifestyles. While there are success stories to tell virtually every day our Clubs are open, it is necessary to demonstrate our impact through research and evaluation.

The following information provides a snapshot of the impact we are making in the lives of youth through our programs and services provided daily in our Clubs. We are pleased to share with you the results of our participation in the 2018 National Youth Outcomes Initiative where Youth Center members ages 13-18 responded anonymously to a survey in the spring of 2018 on how well they are doing in our programs in three critical focus areas: Academic Success, Good Character & Citizenship, and Healthy Lifestyles.
