RSC Kids College will feature Teen Scene, a new program that targets teenage audiences.

The Community Learning Center’s Teen Scene event will “better define the students we serve,” according to the CLC’s booklet.

This is the first year the Kids College will be open only to student’s ages 5-11. Teen Scene provides a way for students ages 12-18 to “make responsible and healthy decisions,” according to the booklet.

Pre-teens and teenagers will have the opportunity to engage with other students their age by attending the event, said Alyssa Loveless program coordinator of Workforce Development.

“(Students) are going to find a variety of camps that they can relate to and that they are interested in,” Loveless said.

Curriculum for Teen Scene is based on the age of the student, she said. “They are not going to be called kids, they are not going to be talked down to and there are lots of fun things to do,” she said.

With a variety of workshops, the CLC hopes to have something for every student, she said.

“(There are) a lot of STEM focused camps. We have FabLab classes, so they (students) can go over and use the 3D printer and the laser engraver,” Loveless said.

For “teens who are trying to focus on college” Teen Scene offers workshops that prep students for the ACT and help them choose a major and a school that best fit their future, Loveless said.

The CLC is hosts a number of programs that engage learning throughout the community, Loveless said. “No matter the age, the interest or the background, anything we can do to support our community and host events that they are interested in, we try to do that.”
