  • 1. REVERE YOUTH CENTER Supported by The Revere Neighborhood Developers
  • 2. WHAT IS A YOUTH CENTER? A Youth Center is a social and recreational institution intended for children and teens. Such a center “ All too often we are giving supports opportunities for young people cut flowers youth to develop their when we should be physical, social, emotional, a teaching them to grow nd cognitive abilities and to their own plants.” experience – John W. Gardner achievement, leadership, enj oyment, friendship, and recognition.
  • 3. REVERE’S YOUTH CENTER PAST ROCA Revere closed 13 years ago and since then, Revere has been at a loss of a Youth Center, which was vital to promoting teen development, drug and health awareness, community organizing and recreational activities. Dimple: “I was an honor student, but outside of school I still needed support to develop my identity and build leadership skills.” Sarath: “As a survivor of mine and my family’s refugee resettlement and trauma experience, being involved with a youth center brought resources for me to be a true Community Leader today.” Michael: “I dropped out of high school to provide for my family. If it wasn’t for my involvement in a youth center I wouldn’t have pursued my GED, develop work skills, leave gang life behind, and be in college.”
  • 6. WHY NOW? Revere is limited in terms of what young individuals can do to alleviate themselves from the daily stresses of a high school student.  Because of this, youth are more susceptible to negative influences, including drug use, violence, and the most deadly of all, boredom. Having a Youth Center opens up opportunities for youth experience achievement, leadership, enjoyment, friendship, and recognition.  Possible installments include: a recording studio, indoor basketball court, a gym, a youth-lead café, art design studio, tutoring programs, etc.
  • 7. SUPPORT  In order to make this a reality, we need the support of young individuals such as yourself. You are the foundation that this Youth Center lies on.  The Worcester Youth Center was only possible because of young individuals from its community.  They were the ones who came together and voiced their opinions to their mayor, their city council, etc, and made their Youth Center what it is today.  We are currently in the same process as well, but we need to figure out the general consensus of what students want for the future of our community.  Surveys  Get your parents involved!
