The Pleasant Valley Connection Teen Center aims to provide resources, activities, and a host of after-school programs for teens that may have nowhere else to turn. By offering such a well connected network of programs, our participants can start with us at the age 4 and can stay until they graduate high school. This continuation of our services ensures that our youths and teens always have a home at PVC.
The mission of 4-H is to provide kids with a sense of community, mentors, and various learning opportunities to develop the skills they need to create positive change in their lives and communities. 4-H is delivered by Cooperative Extension – a community of more than 100 public universities across the nation that provide experiences where young people learn by doing. Clemson University is the extension college for the state of South Carolina. For more than 100 years, 4-H has welcomed young people of all beliefs and backgrounds, giving kids a voice to express who they are and how they make their lives and communities better. Through life-changing 4-H programs, nearly six million kids and teens have taken on critical societal issues, such as addressing community health inequities, engaging in civil discourse, and advocating for equity and inclusion for all.
Teen Center – COVID Update
For the 2021-2022 school year, Pleasant Valley Connection adapted its youth and teen programs to give parents peace of mind as they navigate this unusual year. This not only takes pressure off those who would otherwise have to work full time while helping their children get their schoolwork done but also provides extra help for children who could have slipped through the cracks.
A Special Thanks
Recently, The Community Connectors (TLC) of Leadership Greenville Class of ‘46 saw that “PVC needed some TLC from LG” and came to the rescue. Consequently, Leadership Greenville (LG) renovated our Teen Center into the beautiful facility it is today – providing an ideal space to inspire and empower kids to make a difference in their community. Each day, we work with strong students from area Greenville County Middle Schools and their principals, teachers and counselors.
