Hartsville, S.C. teens will soon have a new and improved place to hang out after school and during the summer. The Hartsville Boys & Girls Club will unveil a more inviting Teen Center complete with fresh paint and new furniture on Thursday, July 24 at 4 p.m.
This project was led by One Hartsville
, made up of community leaders in the Riley Institute Diversity Leaders Initiative (DLI)
program. One Hartsville was formed with one simple goal: to invest in local programs and services to improve the lives of and create future opportunities and exposure for youth in the Hartsville community.
Doug Taylor, SC Campaign's Chief Program Officer, was a part of the One Hartsville team, and provided information and resources to the Boys and Girls Club to support the community’s effort to reduce teen pregnancies.
""I appreciated the opportunity to participate in the DLI program and to be a part of the One Hartsville team,"" said Taylor. ""The entire team was committed to a successful project to transform the Teen Center into a place where teens would enjoy hanging out, and be able to participate in new learning opportunities.""
This event is free and open to the public. For more information on the grand reopening of the Teen Center, call 843-332-1400. The Hartsville Boys & Girls Club is located at Butler Heritage Campus, 1103 S. Sixth Street, Hartsville, S.C. 29550.
