6/1/20: Message from CHIPS AmeriCorps Youth Services Coordinator
Essex and Westford Community;
We're currently working on expanding our programming schedule to include more opportunities for Teen and Tween Center youth to engage with their peers. We are growing our current high school programming to support younger students who also want to discuss topics surrounding LGBTQ+ issues, substance use prevention, and community service, all while maintaining the fun, age-appropriate, be-yourself atmosphere of Teen and Tween Center. Please continue to check our website or subscribe to our newsletter for further updates.
