Smith & Moore Family Teen Center

  • Six school based sites including: Belle Glade Elementary, Glade View Elementary, Pioneer Park Elementary, Gove Elementary, Canal Point Elementary (in Canal Point), and Rosenwald Elementary(in South Bay.)
  • Cafeteria, gymnasium, outdoor play areas, technology centers, Rent-A-Center Library, basketball courts, arts & crafts, prevention-based program rooms.

In September 1994, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County proposed an outreach and partnership program to all Glades’ area schools.

By December, an agreement was reached for the Club to assume the operation of after school programs in three elementary schools in Belle Glade.

Over the years, the Glades’ area Boys & Girls Club grew to encompass six school-based sites and one stand-alone facility, serving more than 1,200 youth through programs and outreach. The original Teen Center, which served 200 members, was located at 350 SW 10th Street.

On April 18, 2018 a groundbreaking ceremony was held for the new state-of-the-art Smith & Moore Family Teen Center. Construction of the 13,000 square foot facility was completed in the spring of 2020 during the pandemic. On June 15, 2020 the Teen Center opened to Club members for summer camp with strict CDC COVID-19 guidelines. During the start of the 2020/21 school year, Smith & Moore Family Teen Center hosted Club members for distance learning during school hours and traditional Club activities after school hours. Because of the pandemic, the official opening celebration was delayed until March 31, 2021.

My teenager has grown up in the Boys & Girls Clubs in the Glades, and now he is a mentor at the Teen Center. He is a shining light and positive role model to the other teens, and he is going to college in the fall! Thank you Teen Center!
