    About us: 

    La Pintoresca Teen Education Center (LPTEC) or “The Teen Center” (as it is lovingly referred to by our members) is a casually relaxed yet intellectually stimulating space for youth. LPTEC is a place where teens can be themselves and interact with their peers in a fun, safe, and inviting environment. Our programming is offered to youth ages 11 to 18. We believe in creating opportunities from which our teens can grow into young adults by focusing on five main elements of development: Working, Playing, Learning, Creating, and Engaging. All of our programming, classes, volunteer opportunities and special events align with these elements, and we pride ourselves on sending professional, friendly, intelligent, artistic, and civically engaged teens out into our community.
