We are an alcohol, drug, and smoke free environment (including vaping). In addition, the youth over time have established 3 main expectations:
1. Regarding PDA (public displays of affection), it makes people feel very uncomfortable & therefore this isn’t the place for it.
2. Clean up after oneself. Teens are free to cook ramen noodles or mac’n’cheese, however, it is expected that they will wash, dry, & put away any & all dishes that they use so that others may use them. This includes throwing away your garbage, wrappers, cups, etc.
3. The use of foul language (i.e. swearing) & talking negatively about others either to their face or behind their back is not acceptable. This is a place where teens want to come to get away from judgments & drama. Respect of people at the CanTeen & the center itself is a must!
