People Are Saying Great Things!

The CanTeen is a safe home away from home. It provides my children opportunities to participate in after school activities until I get out of work in the early evening. At The CanTeen my children get to volunteer in the community, make new friends, and learn important life lessons while being introduced to new and fun experiences.

Bobbi Jo, Parent of 2 Participants

The CanTeen is a place of friendship. When you come here you can be who you are and make new friends.

Aidan, 9th Grade Participant

I can’t say enough great things about The CanTeen. My kids have made so many friends; they always feel welcome and safe. At The CanTeen, I know my kids can always grab a bite to eat after school. If they have a problem or need someone to talk to there is always a trusted compassionate adult available to listen. We are truly fortunate to have this organization staffed by wonderful people.

Get Involved!

Research has shown it takes the support of fives adults (outside of their family) to nurture a young person into a healthy productive adult.
