Tweens August 2022
We are so excited to be returning in person! Starting in May, we will no longer be offering virtual Tweens programming. Tweens will be taking place at our STRIVE building at 28 Foden Road in South Portland! All participants, staff, and volunteers are required to wear a medical mask while in the building and we will be following current COVID-19 guidelines. Due to this, we may have to make sudden changes to programming. In order to get the most up to date information, be sure to check our website or email Alex at to get added to the email list.
