This sounds like something worthwhile.

Can you give us an address for GPS or driving directions please.

Can yuo give us any more information, is this for any teen or what age? There is a big difference between a 13 year old and a 16 year old teen.

I used to take my children there, but I stopped because the young people who attended used very bad language. There was not much discipline.

Back when I was a teen, it was the Teen Canteen. The problem then, and apparently still is, guys who would troll the field to set up later events.

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?

Don't miss out on the discussion!

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
