Monthly ‘Teen Night’ planned in Wolfeboro

WOLFEBORO —  This coming Friday February 13th will be the first monthly Teen Night hosted by Appalachian Mountain Teen Project (AMTP)! The event will run every second Friday of the month, and take place at the Kingswood Youth Center in Wolfeboro.

The goal is to give local youth a safe and fun place to hang out on a Friday night. AMTP plans to host a teen night once a month in the form of coffee houses, talent shows, music jams, and more. Teen Nights are designed and executed by members of the AMTP Youth Leadership Council (AYLC), which is comprised of teen leaders who have been participating with AMTP for at least one year. This Friday's event is a movie night, so teens should expect to kick back with snacks and good friends while enjoying a film on the big screen!

The movie night will take place from 6-8:30 p.m. at the Kingswood Youth Center at 565 Center Street in Wolfeboro for students in grades 7-12. If you have any questions or want to learn more, contact AMTP at (603) 569-5510.
