Come Build With Us!


The Block Center is a program for teens ages 12-16 living in Troy, NY and its immediate vicinity. We are looking for adults who are interested in forming positive supportive relationships with our young people. We meet as a group on Tuesday nights at the Troy Boys and Girls Club for educational and socialization activities, and occasionally on other days for special presentations, events, or field trips. We have opportunities for mentors, tutors, and program volunteers. Please contact us today and start making a difference in the lives of young people!
