Portland Parks & Recreation offers exciting programs and activities for teens citywide! Teen Force strives to reflect the energy and excitement of the teens themselves in the awesome trips, classes, drop-in activities, events, and volunteer/service learning outings we program. These exciting adventures are planned by a team of 5 amazing Teen Services Coordinators housed at community centers around Portland. Teen Force sites include:

Many other Portland Parks & Recreation facilities and programs also offer fun and exciting opportunities for teens as well! If you can't find what you are looking for through Teen Force, check out your local community center and SUN community school to see what's happening. And don't forget our Teen Environmental Education program!
