After-School Program for Teens

Memorial students can register for the free after-school program "Teen Build Up" through the Lussier Community Education Center. The program runs:

  • Mondays from 2:36–6 p.m.
  • Tuesdays–Thursdays: 3:37–6:30 p.m.
  • Fridays: 3:37–6 p.m.

From the Lussier Community Education Center website: Teen Build Up is the umbrella for an array of comprehensive youth development programs serving more than 250 high-school students annually with more than 600 hours of innovative and diverse programming. Every school day, teens from Memorial High School come to the Center to receive help with homework and participate in activities such as cooking, mindfulness, and the arts.

Afterschool time is structured through daily group sessions: Arts & Media Club, Cooking Club, Homework Help, Identity Groups (BOSS and MENS), Open Gym, and Youth Action. There will also be space to relax, socialize, enjoy open gym, study, check-in and reflect, and collaborate with others. There will be times where all youth in the space are required to participate in the club activity to stay in the building. We ask that youth keep an open mind and try new things.
