The CanTeen is a Teen Center that is a safe, supervised site for teens in 8th through 12th grades to get involved or to just hang out. We offer a drop-in site, with a fun and responsible staff, with activities to suit all interests. Some of our offerings are: leadership opportunities, service learning, making new friends, cooking a meal and homework help.

Gus Macker Fundraiser
The Gus Macker 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament (held in August) is sponsored by the “Friends of the CanTeen” to benefit The CanTeen.  For further information or to register a team, follow this link.

Got an Hour, Give an Hour
