For Our Teen Members

The Teen Center at the West Suburban YMCA offers a safe space for teens to connect.

The West Suburban YMCA cares about teens, and we're proud to offer a safe place for middle and high school teens to hang out after school. Teens can play pool, foosball, ping-pong, video games, watch movies, do homework, use the student Wi-Fi, or just hang out with friends.  Located in the basement-level Recreation Room at the Church St Y, the Teen Center offers weeknight fun as well as special events that are designed specifically for our youth members between the ages of 13-17. The Teen Center is free for members and their guests are welcome.
