The Village of Hoffman Estates has partnered with the Hoffman Estates Park District to provide an after school Teen Center at Vogelei Park, 650 W. Higgins Road, and is welcoming teens displaced by the recent closing of the Schaumburg Township Spectrum Teen Center.

The program is open between 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday nights. At Vogelei, teens can drop in to play pool, relax with friends, watch TV, talk with staff and join groups on issues such as loss, music and decision-making.

The Spectrum Teen Center closed this month in a cost-cutting move by Schaumburg Township. The township has contracted with an agency to provide youth counseling services, but no longer operates the drop-in teen center.
