Allegheny Street Bridge Project
The Allegheny Street Bridge Project is all about teens. The primary thrusts of our Allegheny Street Bridge Project Teen Initiative at this time are Free Memberships, 326 Program, Youth Job Service and our NEW Digital Photo Lab. Teens today are faced with challenges unlike at any other time in our history and the Y intends to partner with our teens and their families to assist in the navigation of their path to adulthood and citizenship.
Monday through Friday: 3:00 to 6:00PM
The 326 Program is an after school opportunity for teens to be with their friends, enjoy healthy snacks and experience the excitement of a larger world with the security of a safety net with the Y staff supervision. The 326 Program will begin after Labor Day and will follow the Hollidaysburg Area School District schedule.
7TH GRADE INITIATIVE
Teens can apply for Y memberships at no cost to insure they have access to the programs, services and opportunities of the Y. Teens need a place to be and hang with their friends all while enjoying healthy snacks that is safe and supervised. All you need to sign up is your school ID card. Be sure to keep your membership active by using your membership.
DIGITAL PHOTO LAB
Photography is no longer your grandparents method of keeping memories. Digital photography and software editing has opened this artwork beyond all previous imagination. This program will teach the skills, show the tricks and provide you with a better understanding and appreciation of a “good picture.” Our program will provide cameras and a computer with photo editing software, courtesy of the Best Buy Foundation Grant Program. You may bring your own camera to use as well.
FREE TEEN MEMBERSHIPS
Teens can apply for Y memberships at no cost to insure they have access to the programs, services and opportunities of the Y. Teens need a place to be and hang with their friends that is safe and supervised. The Y’s capability to offer free membership has been made possible by the generosity of Y patrons, Willie Pequignot and the John & Mary Jane Young Scholarship Fund. Please see the Membership Department for additional details. Be sure to keep your membership active by using your membership.
YOUTH JOB SERVICE
Finally a solution to the age-old question for teens of how to earn money and how to get experience to get a job when you are too young to be employed. The Youth Job Service matches teens with community customers for light duty work. Customers can draw on a trained and supervised teen workforce at an affordable price for age appropriate jobs. Teens, 13 to 16, not only earn money but gain the invaluable experiences of completing a job application, participating in a job interview, receive job training and earn the rewards of a job well done by being paid. Additional information is available for teens and customers at the Front Desk of the Y.
