Calling all troops! We are preparing for the battle of a lifetime and we need like minded community loving people to be a part of our coming success. If you are a dependable, self-starter, love to organize and you are a people person, this opportunity is for you. The majority of this opportunity is just keeping the volunteers happy, appreciated and informed. We want to make sure we have accurate information, place volunteers in the area they will have the most fun, and make sure they don't forget their commitments. You will schedule volunteers for meetings/opportunities and communicate regularly with Programs about the center's volunteer needs. Some recruiting may be necessary and we are open to ideas to make the process easier and more fun. At a minimum, opportunity would likely take no more than 2 hours a week plus quarterly meetings. But we are happy to include more time and interaction to your level of comfort.

We lead the next generation of warriors, and the battle they face is the battle of the mind!


Growing trends in teen homelessness, unemployment, mental health struggles and even suicide have prompted us to study the root of the problem. Most of the time, it is a sense of hopelessness. Too many teens do not see their full potential. They are bullied and even programmed by society to think that they have no worth. These are future doctors, lawyers, caregivers, service, factory and skilled workers, and they are very valuable! There is no discrimination to hopelessness. When it gets really bad, they do not have the brain development to see the possibility of hope.

What is hope? To us, it is a sense of self, safety and community. This is where our warrior is found! In 2020 we are helping teens to find their inner warrior. WAR PAINT Whether for battle or celebration, the painted face of the warrior is unique to the individual. STC uses art as a means of self-expression, healing and fun. ARMOR The warrior's armor is designed for battle. It protects the warrior's weakest parts. The armor we build is that of confidence, skills and wit. TRIBE A warrior does not go into battle alone. He is supported by his tribe. They find a tribe here at STC. We are artists, gamers, actors, athletes and activists.
Be a part of the movement to change the way we teach the next generation...the generation that will take care of us one of these days!
