Marblehead for Teens, a local non-profit, recently announced the appointment of Executive Director and local resident Molly Williams, who has been charged with opening a brand new teen center in Marblehead as soon as November.
The organization is now scouting Marblehead for available spaces and is looking to enlist the support of local organizations and town residents.
"The Marblehead teen center, the actual name for which will be chosen by teens, is being modeled after other highly successful teen centers that are teen-managed and – importantly – dedicated, physically separate spaces teens can call and make their own," Williams said in a release.
“We have worked for nearly six years to find what would be the most effective way to help Marblehead teens address the common lament 'there’s nothing to do in Marblehead," said Gene Cornfield, president of Marblehead for Teens.
