Celebrate National Nonprofit Day with Prescott's Launch Pad Teen Center Launch Party, Sponsored by Findlay Subaru Prescott

The Launch Pad Teen Center Launch Party

Enjoy a family day of fun, activities and celebration with the Launch Pad Teen Center of Prescott this Saturday, August 17. The Launch Pad is holding a Launch Party to celebrate the kickoff to its year-long fundraising campaign for the reconstruction and renovation of the new Launch Pad Teen Center.

Findlay Prescott Subaru is one of the proud supporters of the Launch Pad and this event. They encourage the community to take part in the celebration and to get to know this local, non-profit organization a little better.

A Dream to Help Prescott Area Teens Grows into a Reality

The Launch Pad Teen Center is a monumental afterschool destination for the youth of Yavapai County. It provides a safe place for teens to hang out, grow relationships, develop skills, get some food and receive help with their schoolwork.

At its current location, the popular teen support center is a mere 1,100 square feet, which is proving to be pretty tight quarters for their fast growing population. Courtney Osterfelt, the executive director and founder of the Launch Pad is making a reality of her dream to positively impact the lives of the local youth at a safe, fun, and educational location. The popularity of the Launch Pad is quickly growing as well as the need for more space.

The Launch Pad has acquired a location that will allow for 5,400 square feet to house an art room, full tutor center and computer lab, a stage, music room, a game room, and Courtney states they are "super excited for the non-profit coffee shop that will also provide opportunities for teens to take part in a 6-month – a year paid apprenticeship program."

Osterfelt and her staff have created a welcoming environment for all teens to feel safe and accepted, all while getting their needs met – such as tutoring sessions, socializing, nutrition, self-development, career training and so much more.

It's the Season to Give and Watch it Grow with Teens Sprouting Up Everywhere!

To ensure that more teens can fully benefit from what the Launch Pad has to offer, a bigger space was essential. The launch party is to celebrate the start of the capital campaign to raise the funds to support the renovations that are needed to convert the space into this dream teen center.

"This event allows us to showcase the future of the teen center to the community. Everyone is so excited for this launch of our new campaign. It provides great recognition to help raise funds to support these kids," said Courtney.
