The Teen Center

  • Slide Title


The Boys & Girls Club of Brookings' new 15,000-squarefoot $2.2 million Teen Center officially opened on Tuesday, May 26, 2015. The $2.2 million new center, which is a remodeling of the former Peace Lutheran Facility, is across 12th Street South from the club and has more than 200 teenage members, with 70 to 80 visiting the club every day.

The new Teen Center was designed with direction from the Club's teen youth.The Teen Center features many different areas for club members to hang out, including a main gym area and gaming area, which includes a pool table and ping-pong table. The new building includes a STEAM learning area, with STEAM standing for science, technology, engineering, arts, and math. In the area, teens will have the resources they need for learning, discovering and inventing. 

The new center also has a workforce development program that will partner with local businesses with the goal of retaining more young people in Brookings. Teens didn't get the swimming pool or bowling alley they suggested, but the new center includes a gym, study areas, offices, snack bars and an outdoor area for playing basketball.
