We appreciate your patronage and support.

Darien Youth Center

Known as "The Depot", this center welcomes all Darien teens to a safe, secure nurturing environment.

http://dariendepot.com

The Depot is a collaborative youth center, the first and oldest of its kind in the nation, where community needs are addressed with staff supported guidance, programming by youth, and parenting education. An alcohol and drug-free zone monitored by caring, vetted adults, The Depot provides a safe space for youth to develop leadership, planning, and decision-making skills, interact with people of different backgrounds, access adult role models and serve as community assets. The Darien Depot has been a beacon in Darien for over twenty years, providing hundreds of community youth with a safe, secure, nurturing environment where they can eat, play, and just be themselves. All Darien teens are welcome. Unlike other teen centers, we never charged a membership fee because we do not want to exclude those who could not afford to pay.
