The Director of the Youth Drop-in Center is Paula Plante.
The drop-in center caters to predominantly disadvantaged youth in grades 6 thru age 18. The activities include basketball, foosball, pool, movies, and a snack. The youth in attendance are considered at-risk by the local school system as well as law enforcement. The center gives the youth a safe alternative to the street. As part of the program, trained staff is expected to engage the youth during their activities with the goal of building a trusting, nurturing, and mutually respectful relationship.
In addition to drop-in center activities, staff offers a variety of groups and trainings such as; “Suicide Intervention”, “Positive Dating Relationships”, “Anti-Bullying”, and “Rising Above Adversity Positively and Responsibly”.
