This fundraiser supports the Basement Teen Center (BTC), located in downtown Montpelier. The BTC is a safe, adult-supervised, drop-in space that welcomes youth ages 12-18 during after school hours and until 10pm on Friday nights. We provide daily activities as well as the chance to just hang out. Many youth love the BTC because it is a place where they "can just be." Everything we do with and for youth is free to them, always - this includes daily food and meals, field trips, and any other activity that we offer. This event raises the necessary funds for the Basement to continue to offer safe, free alternatives for young people in Central Vermont during the after-school hours when youth are most likely to engage in high-risk behaviors. The Basement Teen Center is a program under the direction of the Washington County Youth Service Bureau/Boys & Girls Club. For more information on the race itself, and it's Harry Potter theme, please visit BasementTeenCenter.org/AmazingRace. Please help us in supporting the youth of Central Vermont!
