In 1999, the Landfall Teen Center opened, quickly becoming a destination spot for youth in the community. Teens come to participate in after-school activities, like community gardening, cooking classes, job and career guidance, and biking trips. The center also offers computer stations, 3D printing, and space for music production. “They do a lot of organized biking trips and just learn different things about being a teenager,” explains Edward Shukle, City Administrator. “[The Center] also helps with homework. They’ll help mentor those that are having trouble in school.” Teens have also helped volunteer to transform the center, fostering community pride. Many teens in the area were reluctant to bring friends to their manufactured-home community, but now, many are sharing what they have built at the Teen Center with friends from neighboring communities. After school programs have impacts that range from academics to health.
