Announcing the launch of Project Teen Lounge!

Programs start January 2021

We are pleased to announce the launch of Project Teen Lounge, a series of after-school programs for teens in grades 6-12. Programs will launch virtually starting in January 2021.  


January programs include: Let’s Play: Among Us (January 12), art-making with recycled materials (January 13, 20, & 27), a career speaker (January 19) and a resume/cover letter workshop (January 26). Registration is open now! 


Project Teen Lounge aims to make sure that San Leandro teens have skills they need to be successful in college, career, and life by providing programs that explore art/self-expression, collaboration, life skills, design thinking, and career planning. Guest teachers will include local artists, professionals in the design, tech, and medical fields, and life-skills teachers including a career consultant and a mechanic.  


Topics for programming have been developed in conversation with the Library’s Teen Advisory Group and the City’s Youth Advisory Council, both of which continue to consult on developing new programs.

 Programs are funded in part by a grant from the California State Library.
