The Schooner Youth Center

Welcome What We Do Contact Us Rent Space HotSpot Cafe Schooner Food Pantry

Providing both a venue and hands-on leadership for youth-related training

& recreational activities that help youths productively serve their community and their country.  


Located in a former school building, we have a gymnasium, kitchen, stage, eight classrooms, and a 40-car parking lot in downtown Monessen, and are guided by our board of eight dedicated community members.

We have future plans to house minority businesses, with an eye to helping young entrepreneurs learn how to start businesses and apply for government contracts.  Any rents from the business offices underwrite the costs involved in youth recreation and training.  Please check out our current programs!
