Teen Center / Clinic

201405285459Located in the drop-in center at Covenant House, AYA POWER (Peer Outreach Workers Education and Referral) Teen Center & Clinic is run by teens for teens with supportive professional adult staff when necessary. Together we create a safe space where youth can hangout with their peers in a relaxed environment, gain access to resources and education, and learn about safer options when needed. No one makes judgments – the only goal is to provide help and support.

Are you between the ages of 13 and 23 years old?

Our drop-in center provides a safe space to hang out, play Xbox, watch movies, grab a snack, grab clothing from our clothing closet, grab some take home food from our food pantry, or just talk to someone who is ready to listen.

Questions or feeling shy? You can always call us: (907).929.2633

What Teens say:

“It’s a place to chill and kick back.”

“It’s a fun and comfortable environment.”

“If I didn’t come here, I’d still be on the streets.”

“There is music, testing, and free food in a friendly environment. There’s no pressure to be in the teen clinic, you can just hang out and chill.”

“Well I’ve been coming here since I was a teenager and watched this place grow. It’s cool to see teens learning new facts and being aware. If you need someone to talk to come to the teen clinic.”
