The Bangor Region YMCA has added a new program for the Bangor community that is a drop-in program dedicated to building strong relationships and providing safe spaces for teens at no cost and with minimal barriers.

This program is much needed for Bangor, which has very few places for teens to hang out and get home work done or meet new kids in the community.

They have been working hard on renovating space within the second street facility that has included new flooring, paint and encouraging and inviting decor.

Check out this video, posted on the Y Teen Center's Facebook page, of what the new teen center looks like and how it got there.

Their first event is scheduled for March 5th for a Teen Trivia Night with a suggested donation of $1 - $2.  You can check out all their upcoming events in the event section of the Facebook page.
