For the past 25 years The Basement Teen Center (BTC) has operated as a drop-in center for young people ages 13-18 to come together and participate in opportunities that encourage positive growth. Each year the Basement has about 3000 visits and serves thousands of meals and snacks. The Basement offers a wide variety of programs including: photography, filmmaking, music programs, nutritional education, Friday night dinners, writing workshops, academic support programs and more. The Basement also offers photography, music and culinary mentorship opportunities. All programming at the BTC is free to any young person who wants to participate.
The Basement Teen Center's Amazing Race is an annual race around Montpelier, Vermont, bringing young people together with their community to follow cryptic clues and complete mental and physical challenges in a race to the finish. This event raises the necessary funds for the Basement to continue to offer a free space for young people in Central Vermont to experience postitive growth.
