Benicia Teen Center

“Helping Youth Live a New Day”


The Teen Center is a drop-in center where teens can play music, do art, watch movies, do homework, and play pool, ping pong, etc. In addition counseling and mentoring, services will be offered to those teens that need additional support. The Teen Center will be “a safe place for the Teens to fall”, a place where they can spend time with their friends as well as caring adults in the community.

Kyle was a musician, an accomplished keyboardist and guitarist. He had been in various bands since the age of 13 and he loved spending free time playing music with his friends. Music was a big part of his life and so, we will freely offer a place and equipment for teens to express themselves through music.

We need to be able to bring some good from the tragedy of Kyle’s death. He often complained “there is nothing to do in this town!” We think he would be happy with our plans for the Teen Center.
