SAN BERNARDINO TEEN CENTER

Students in San Bernardino are struggling with loneliness, mental health, violence, housing insecurity, access to hygienic products, services, and personal safety. 10% of minors are currently homeless, and 90% are classified by the School Board as “socioeconomically disadvantaged”. Sandals Church and the ROGO Foundation, in partnership with multiple city and county educators as well as local small business owners and nonprofits, have decided to address these problems by launching a Teen Center giving teenagers access to a safe, clean, and fun environment for them to connect with their peers and adults who want to walk alongside them, as well as get access to valuable aid.

By redesigning a rundown and unused building at Sandals Church San Bernardino, the Teen Center will provide access to laundry facilities, licensed counseling, clothing, healthy food, recreational facilities and regular programming, as well as career/opportunity development facilities and services.

LAUNDRY CENTER

A commercial laundry facility open to students of surrounding middle and high schools, free of charge, allowing them access to the facility, which will include three commercial washers/dryers (along with detergent, fabric softener, bleach, etc.) and a lounge for them to hang out in while they wait for their laundry.

LOUNGE

A fully furnished and beautifully designed lounge space for students to rest, relax or even get some studying done. While safe and secure alternatives to hanging out on the streets are hard to come by, this lounge will serve as a sanctuary for teenagers—a place where they’ll feel safe to let their guard down.

COURTYARD PATIO

This shaded and outfitted patio will support various programming opportunities, including open-mic nights, life skill classes and micro-concerts, while also being accessible to students to hang out with their friends or work on their homework

COUNSELING AND TUTORING

Partnering with other local organizations, several rooms and spaces will be available for free counseling to support students’ mental health needs and tutoring to broaden their scholastic opportunities in the future.
