Ken Lori, Teen Meetinghouse Launch

Canadian Social worker Ken Lori wants to provide teens in his town with a safe and fun place to relax, learn and have fun. He started his project, The Meeting House, to fill a gap he saw in the community.

“I am starting this project because my home town, Windsor, Ontario is without a comprehensive, centrally-located Teen Recreation Center, unlike many smaller communities,” Ken said. “The major service gap in Windsor is broad-based preventative, proactive, non-competitive physical, social and artistic activities for teenagers.”

The recreation center would give youth the opportunity to explore a wide variety of extra-curriculur offerings.
