Friends of Recovery
Since 2006, The Oneonta Teen Center (OTC) has been providing the youth of the greater Oneonta area with a space to have fun, enjoy creative youth-driven events, find mentorship and support, in a safe space where they can feel accepted, included and valued. We strive to not only provide a youth hang-out, but to create a community of youth who support each other and help drive the direction of our programming and take ownership and pride in the center itself.
The OTC promotes responsible, healthy and substance free lifestyles through programming that urge good decisions, mental support, and rewarding alternatives to using drugs or alcohol.
The OTC is a place where youth can be themselves, find people who will listen, support and respect them, and where they can start on their growth to being productive, supportive and healthy members of our community.
Youth interested in volunteer hours can help with special events like our annual haunted house, or by taking part in our Youth Leadership Board providing guidance and planning for our events and offerings.
We also believe everyone has the right to a safe, fun space. This is why our membership is FREE to all area youth ages 12-18. Always has been, always will be!
