Our teens deserve a safe haven... Schools & Kids, posted by Teen Parents, a resident of the Ventura neighborhood, on Sep 25, 2009 at 12:25 pm
The Palo Alto Family YMCA has been operating a Ventura Teen Center at the Ventura Activities Center for years, but has been a little abandoned in the last few months. However, they seem to be coming back strong this year and are working very hard to reopen the center. They are holding a Parent/Teen Informational Night in the multipurpose room from 6pm-7pm next Wednesday, to which I encourage all parents of teens to attend. They are looking for input from the community. It's up to us to create a safe, fun and healthy environment for our teens!

Hi everyone, the address is 3990 Ventura Ct Palo Alto, CA.
Ventura Ave is off of El Camino Real so if you're going south on El Camino Real you make a left onto Ventura Ave and then a right on to Ventura Ct. Coming north, you make a right onto Ventura Ave and then a right onto Ventura Court.
The center wants to hear from everyone, so please be there! Ventura needs help! And the Y is looking to completely transform it! I believe any parent of a 5ht-12th grader is welcome as they want to reach out to as young as middle schoolers. I know for a fact that they want to develop structured and age appropriate programs and services as they are aware that a pre teen and a senior high school teen are very different and have different needs. Also, FYI most of the programs offered will be either free or at a very tiny cost. Any more questions?
