The RNH Teen Program
For decades, Riverdale Neighborhood House has provided a home-away-from-home for twelve to eighteen year-olds from our local community. It is a place for teens to call their own, to discover who they are – and who they want to become. Our model of youth development and life planning helps teens build the foundations for their educational and professional futures while gaining meaningful social experiences. Teens may also explore the creative arts by participating in special workshops in poetry, the visual arts and dance.
