Teen Fridays

The 1st & 3rd Friday of every month from 6:30-9:30pm, the Emilson Y hosts Teen Fridays, a place where teens come to meet friends, hang out and have fun in a safe, supervised environment.  Activities include art, Zumba, karaoke, spinning, and special events!  Every month the activity changes and there's something new to try.
