Appalachian Mountain Teen Project and Kingswood Youth Center hold April Teen Night

 WOLFEBORO — On Friday April 10, Appalachian Mountain Teen Project (AMTP) and the Kingswood Youth Center (KYC) will be co-hosting a second Teen Night at the KYC.

The theme is going to be a game night modeled after "Minute to Win It", having the teens take on 60-second challenges using objects that are commonly available around the house. The event will take place from 5:30-8 p.m. for students in grades 7-12 and will provide games, dinner, and time with friends.

AMTP and the KYC are excited to be collaborating on this project together. The hope is to continue providing teens a safe and fun place to spend time on weekends, while also helping teens flourish in a substance-free environment. The AMTP Youth Leadership Council (AYLC) members, teens who have participated in AMTP programming for at least one year, are helping to design and plan the Teen Nights. The hope is to continue collaborating with the teens of KYC as well in order to bring more ideas and creativity to the table. If these once a month Teen Nights continue to grow, the AMTP and KYC hope to continue expanding into more weekend programming next year.

AMTP is a community-based, nonprofit organization committed to supporting healthy development and resilience in youth, families and communities throughout the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. For more news and information on AMTP, call (603) 569-5510, visit the website www.teenprojectnh.org, "Like" us on Facebook, and sign up for our quarterly e-newsletter.
