Teen Empowerment Program
City of Eugene Recreation Teen Empowerment Program works with community partners to provide out of school time recreation and enrichment activities for youth. Programs empower teens by building life and job skills, offering access to caring youth and adult mentors, participating in service opportunities, improving leadership abilities, and increasing access to other vital community resources. Programs are designed to be low-barrier and inclusive so that every young person is provided the opportunity to grow up safely and access their best possible future.
In 2022 the Teen Empowerment Program is focused on engaging with and empowering youth and teens to help design program activities, developing partnerships with community organizations, supporting current teen programming at recreation centers, piloting new programs and training staff in anticipation of full program launch in 2023.
