Here's What You Need To Know!
Stop in at the Dover Teen Center for educational & social programs, events and happenings. While you're there, pick up a copy of the monthly calendar to find out what’s going on. The Teen Center sponsors after-school homework help, band nights ("DoverPalooza"), special events, trips, video/board games, sports, and outdoor events in addition to daily activities.
Located on the ground floor of the McConnell Center, At the Teen Center you'll find a space that is right for you, no matter what you're itching to do! Once you're inside, you'll see what we have to offer, which includes; (3) TV/Gaming Stations, Foosball, Billiards, (5) Computer Workstations, Air Hockey Table, Basketball Skill-Shot, Ping-Pong Table, Study/Homework Areas and our very popular after-school Snack Bar...where we offer daily snacks to our participants.
To provide a safe, fun place for teens to gather after school and for special events.
To connect teens with positive adult role models and mentors.
To provide skill-based educational and social programming to support the individual growth and maturation of our participants.
This is one of our messages that we continually express here at the Dover Teen Center. You see, it is our belief that if you provide youth with the right information to be successful, and push them appropriately, that they can learn to be a leader, and live out their life's experiences to fullest.
As a parent, we’re sure you want to know about the management and policies of the Dover Teen Center. When a participant and parent register with us, you'll see our full set of Community Behavior Expectations outlined in the registration packet. These are in place to ensure a safe and fun atmosphere for everyone at the Teen Center. Having a combination of full-time staff and undergraduate interns present each day and at special events allows for plenty of individual contact between participant and staff, to ensure proper supervision.
The Dover Teen Center is located right next to the Dover Public Library, on the ground floor of the McConnell Center. The main door we use is our "alley door", which is located on the St. Thomas Street side of the McConnell Center. If you've entered St. Thomas Street, simply look for the alley, diagonally across from the District Court House, and our door is clearly marked. Of course if you're having trouble, you can always call us in the office at (603) 516-8336 or (603) 817-0171.
The Dover Teen Center is coordinated by the Community Outreach Bureau of the Dover Police Department.
