New Teen Center- Chapel Hill, NC

This petition had 101 supporters


The Chapel Hill Youth Council is proposing a new, comprehensive facility for our local Teen Center. We need your support so that we can achieve this goal!

The current location of the Teen Center is very small, inaccessible, outdated, and inadequate to meet the needs of young people. A new Teen Center would foster youth engagement, create safe and entertaining spaces for young people to work and create, and would increase visibility of youth-run organizations. It is important that young people have an environment to interact with others their age in a setting beyond school and a new Teen Center would make this possible!

Chapel Hill Youth Council works hard to amplify youth voices in politics but find that we are setback due to the inefficiencies and obscurity of the current Teen Center. As a group when we would brainstorm what projects we felt were important to teenagers we began to realize that they all led back to our need to have increased communication and interaction between the youth of Chapel Hill.

We know that this sort of project is do-able based off of the success of the beautiful Seymour Senior Center. We hope to be able to achieve a building that has resources for students in middle and high school so that there is a useful and safe spaces for children to hang out and do work.

We hope that you show your support for this initiative by signing the petition below. Having supporters shows that the community backs us up and will help convince town council to make the necessary change.
