A Vernon teen centre is under new management.

On Thursday, operation of Teen Junction will transfer from the North Okanagan Literacy Initiative Society to the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs.

“Teen Junction has been an important part of our community for nearly 20 years. Joining forces with the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club will ensure that Teen Junction can continue to serve youth in the North Okanagan for many years to come,” said Bill Miller, Literacy and Youth Initiatives Society of North Okanagan president.

The centre provides an environment where youth experience a sense of belonging through peer interaction and positive adult relationships.

“We welcome Teen Junction to Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs and our network of Youth Centres and youth serving professionals across the Okanagan. Teen Junction has a long history of serving youth in the Vernon area,” said Diane Entwistle, Boys and Girls Clubs CEO.

“We will continue to develop and enhance Teen Junction as a safe place for youth to belong.”
