Central Wyoming teenagers will soon have more room at one of their hang-outs.

Work has already started on building additional space for the teen center at the Casper Boys and Girls club facility on east K street.

When finished, an additional twenty-three hundred square feet will be added on, with the existing space undergoing a renovation.

Senator Drew Perkins of Natrona County says the club is currently cramming about 20-30 teens in the space, and eventually more will come, so more room is need for them to accommodate their needs.

“It’s a place where teens come before, during and lunch hour and after school. They socialize, they work on homework, they do mentoring, they work on life skills, they have access to computers and technology things here, they play games, and they just associate in a healthy and safe environment.”

The Boys and Girls Club is working on a campaign effort to raise an additional six-hundred thousand dollars for the project.

The new teen center will be named after former Casper resident and Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife Lynne.
