School ends for the day - the City of Shoreline’s Youth and Teen Development Program opens its doors to Middle School and High School age participants.

Located a few blocks south of Shorewood High School on Fremont Ave, The Rec is within walking distance for many students (a bus stop is right outside for those a bit farther away).

The Rec is a fun, relaxing, and supportive space for young people to spend time after school. A variety of activities are offered including basketball, pool, ping pong, video games, and arts and crafts.

Did we mention they have Wi-Fi and warm food available daily?

The Rec is open Tuesday-Thursdays 2:30-7:00pm, Fridays 2:30pm-12:00am, and Saturdays 7:00pm-12:00am and is located at the Richmond Highlands Recreation Center, 16554 Fremont Ave N.

Beyond their core drop-in programming, a range of other activities and opportunities are available such as leadership development, song-writing, hip hop dancing, and educational workshops covering mental health and crisis intervention, domestic violence prevention, and job readiness.

For parents familiar with the popular Tween Night program offered for 5th and 6th graders, you’ll be glad to know they have expanded to include Middle School Night on the third Saturday of every month during the school year. Meant to act as a stepping-stone into their regular after-school programming, the building is still open to High School age participants, but with activities geared towards a younger audience.

The program is entirely free and only requires that the youth participants sign themselves in when they arrive. They always have consistent, trained, and caring staff onsite, with extra staffing and the School Resource Officer interacting with participants on weekends.
