About

An encouraging word, a moment to listen, someone who cares...Youth today are facing trouble and misinformation in a world driven by digital and social media. Reality is a confusing and overwhelming place. Parents are busy, broken, and stuck trying to do everything on their own. If we could just get them to put the phones down and see that there is so much more to learn about life than what you saw on YouTube.

Sumner Teen Center strives to improve the lives of our youth and prepare them for the real world ahead. We provide a safe place to play, hang out, and learn about life. We offer activities that teach life, social, and leadership skills in an environment where students are free to be themselves.

We are in need of encouraging adults who can drive to Gallatin, TN and spend at least 2 hours each week to play games, listen, and mentor our youth. Background check and volunteer application are required. Hours are tracked via Track it Forward app and we appreciate and reward our faithful volunteers.

Students must adhere to the rules of the center. Disrespectful or inappropriate activity is not tolerated.
