Teens engage in fun activity at GRIT Center (copy)

Teens participate in an activity at the GRIT Center, which was opened by the YWCA. The center offers a safe place for teens.

Any parent has heard the complaints. “I’m bored.” “There’s nothing to do.” Or the mobile version from family vacations, “are we there yet?”

Maybe technology has altered this refrain. Now the youth are likely to say, “the Wi-Fi is slow.” Nevertheless, the message is the same throughout the years. Teenagers get bored and need something to do. Otherwise, boredom can have unforeseen consequences.
