Muskogee Teen Center received this grant for the purpose of providing a safe, supervised environment for Muskogee youth to have recreation and enrichment opportunities during their out of school hours. The program is to operate year round with expanded hours during summer and school breaks. In some of the other sections I told about the challenges we have had with a group of youth at the beginning of the school year. While our staff understands that it is developmentally appropriate to be somewhat rebellious during the teen years, we were somewhat unprepared for the negative behavior we saw last fall. We were also unprepared for the number of youth exhibiting this behavior. We have always relied on a few well chosen rules, stated clearly and posted throughout the building.

Hanging out at the Youth and Teen Center YTC at The Barn is a fun, safe way for teens and pre-teens to socialize and participate in recreational and educational programs. Columbia and Howard County kids, ages 9 to 18, are welcomed year round with after-school, summer time and some weekend activities and programs that are designed to promote self-esteem and to develop life skills. YTC The Barn is a multi-purpose, two-story facility where teens can access a computer lab, watch movies, play Wii or XBOX on a large flat screen TV, or enjoy billiard tables, air hockey, ping pong and various board games in the recreation room. Upstairs features a mini-gym for basketball, volleyball and other games and activities, as well as a snack bar run by the entrepreneurial program. Registration is required for The Drop-In. Serving all of Howard County and Columbia, the program operates year round, after school, during the summer and some weekends.
