This fundraiser supports the Basement Teen Center (BTC), located in downtown Montpelier, VT. The BTC is a safe, adult-supervised, drop-in space that welcomes youth ages 12-18 during after school hours and until 10pm on Friday nights. We provide daily activities as well as the chance to just hang out. Many youth love the BTC because it is a place where they "can just be" - teens report that they feel like they can be themselves here, access the support they need, make new friends, and explore new interests. Everything we do with and for youth is free to them, always - this includes daily food and meals, field trips, and any other activity that we offer. This event raises funds for the Basement to offer safe, free alternatives that build important skills for young people in Central Vermont during the hours when youth are most likely to engage in high-risk behaviors (3pm-6pm). The Basement Teen Center is a program under the direction of the Washington County Youth Service Bureau/Boys & Girls Club. For more information on the race itself, and its Super Hero theme, please visit BasementTeenCenter.org/AmazingRace. If you'd like to form a team,, please email BTCAmazingRace@wcysb.org. Please help us in supporting the youth of Central Vermont! Thanks!
