Lauderhill Teen Program

The Parks and Leisure Services Department, the Community Redevelopment Agency and the Lauderhill Regional Chamber of Commerce are proud to announce an exciting new youth program for Lauderhill Teens ages 13 – 18 years old (18yr olds must still be in high school).  This dynamic program will provide high school students the opportunity to be involved in the following activities:

Young Entrepreneurial Club
Participants will be challenged to start their own entrepreneurial venture while earning community service hours in an interactive classroom environment. The teens will also have an opportunity to meet Lauderhill business owners, professionals and take field trips to local businesses. This course is provided by Junior Achievement and is dedicated to educating youth about entrepreneurship, work readiness, financial literacy, business planning, written communication, and presentation skills.

Lifeguard Training Courses sponsored by the Red Cross
Participants will be taught CPR, First Aid, and Lifeguarding skills. Training will prepare teens with the aquatic knowledge and skill that will provide opportunity for future employment.

Students Working Against Tobacco (SWAT)
(Sponsored by the Broward County Health Department)
Teens will participate as a committee member in the Lauderhill Chapter of SWAT to reduce the tobacco industries influence on youth.

Chess Club Teens will learn to improve their imagination, logic, concentration, critical thinking, reasoning skills, and intuition competing in the challenging game of chess.

Big Brothers/Big Sisters
Teens will volunteer to help younger children reach their potential with positive one to one relationships with the goal of contributing to better schools, brighter futures, and stronger communities for all.

The Teen Program meets Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursdays from 4pm to 6pm at the Sadkin Community Center. For more information about being involved in this exciting and comprehensive program should call Torrance Gary at 954-321-2450.
