The City of Lake Charles releases dates for the latest Teen Connection sessions for local high school students on Thursday, February 7, from 5 pm – 6 pm.

Thursday, February 7: Julian Green, Program Director at BBBS SWLA, will teach teens that they are never too young to start an organization that addresses problems or fills a void in their community. He’ll also discuss steps to take to get a nonprofit organization started. This session will be held at the Cpl Donald Ray Stevens Center, formerly Goosport Recreation, located at 1619 Cessford St.

"Teen Connection” is designed to help teenagers learn job skills, college prep, social media, interview skills, and ACT prep among others. The classes are instructed by educators, government officials, and business leaders in the community.
