UPCOMING EVENTS @ THE DEPOT

WELCOME TO THE DEPOT

“A Safe Place to BE and a Path to BECOME!”

The Depot Jordan Valley Teen Center (The Depot) is a faith-based, 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides Teens in East Jordan and throughout the Jordan Valley a “Safe Place to BE” where their needs will be met through Christ-like love. Our goal is to help these young people become connected, responsible, confident, equipped and prepared young adults.

Since opening in January 2017, more than 600 teens have stopped by The Depot to check it out. These 600+ teens are primarily from East Jordan but include teens from 17 different school systems as well who spend part of Friday afternoons playing games, sports, and just visiting with their friends.

WE ARE EXPANDING!

After five years of “Free-For-All-Fridays” every week from 3p-6p, we are celebrating our 5-year Anniversary by adding a 2nd day of the week to our lineup – “Tutoring Tuesdays!”  While Fridays are all about fun with friends and having complete access to the entire Depot selection of games, arts & crafts, and TV & Wi-Fi… Tutoring Tuesdays will be focused on a variety of learning opportunities.

For starters, volunteer tutors will be available from 3p-5p to help Teens with their homework in a variety of subjects. Additionally, various types of classes will be available ranging from single-day classes like Cooking to mutli-session classes ranging from Financial Literacy to learning to play the Ukulele!

Throughout 2022, our goal is to continue adding additional days until The Depot is open and available to serve our Teens 5-day a week!

Be Part of Our Success!

With our goal of being open 5-days a week to better serve our Teens with life skills and self-esteem building programs, classes, tutoring, field trips, mentors, community resources, and career opportunities, there are three areas of need where we could use your support.

 

  1.  PRAYERS | We believe in prayer and that God works through people to accomplish His will and good works.
  2.  VOLUNTEERS | We are always in need of volunteers to provide a good role model, work special events, and help with other projects.  For more information and areas in which you can volunteer, click here or download an application by clicking the button below.
  3.  FUNDING | Whether it’s a monthly pledge or a one-time, lump-sum donation, financial support is vital to maintain and expand everything from staff and day-to-day operations to programming, equipment, and healthy food for the Teens.
