A popular Columbia Association-sponsored (CA) gathering spot for youth and teens has a new name: the Youth and Teen Center (YTC) at The Barn, or, simply put, YTC @ The Barn.
The YTC, known previously as the Columbia Teen Center, is located at 5853 Robert Oliver Place in Oakland Mills.
“The new name better acknowledges the full range of ages — youth ages 9 to 18 — served through our facility and programs,” said Rene Buckmon, manager of youth and teen programs for CA. “It also reflects the new and exciting programs and activities that will be offered.”
An open house celebrating the new name will be held on Monday, Sept. 24, from 6 to 8 p.m.
Hanging out at the YTC is a fun, safe way for teens and preteens to socialize and participate in recreational and educational programs. For more information, visit ColumbiaAssociation.org/YTCattheBarn.
