Who is the Teen Center for?

Simply put, the Cupertino Teen Center is a place exclusively for the teens of Cupertino. We have a computer lab for homework or gaming, two big screen TVs with a PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, a Foosball table, pool table, and antique pinball machine. Drop by with some friends after school, weekends, or during the summer. If you want to see anything particular at the Teen Center, let one of our staff know. Chances are, we can get it. The best part is that it's FREE for resident teens of Cupertino. You just have to be in the 6th-12th grade.
