Hours and Operations

We follow the EWSD School Calendar and are not open on half-days or when school is closed.​ As such, we will not be holding in-person gatherings for the rest of the 2019-2020 school year. Instead, we will be hosting Tween Center digitally via Zoom. Please complete the consent form linked below for your child to participate. Please contact us at 802-878-6982 ext. 0 with any questions.


Monday: 3:00pm - 5:00pm

Wednesday: 3:00pm - 5:00pm


We will be following a looser schedule than normal.

Activities will include games, crafts, experiments, and exercises.

The Essex Tween Center provides a safe space for elementary school students to engage with peers and positive adult role models. Trained CHIPS staff and volunteers are on-site to supervise and organize activities, crafts, provide homework help, and prepare healthy snacks. 

There's lots of fun to be had in the Tween Center. Our space includes air hockey, a pool table, foosball, a basketball net, arts and crafts, piano and guitars, board games and puzzles, computers, and age-appropriate video games and movies.

The Essex Teen Center is open to 4th-5th grade students in the Essex Westford School Districtand is free to attend.

Volunteer in the Tween Center

Essex CHIPS is looking for high school and adult volunteers to help supervise our Teen Center once in-person operations resume.

Gain experience working with youth, have a positive, lasting impact on youth, and have fun!
