BLOCK After School Program - A Great Alternative for Teens

Come visit Canton's new Teen Center, called the B.L.O.C.K, (Building Leaders Out of Canton's Kids). The B.L.O.C.K is open to all kids, ages 11 to 17. Hours are available during school breaks and special events on the weekends.

The B.L.O.C.K is a place where kids can spend quality time in a safe, secure, and supervised environment, a place where kids will want to spend countless hours with their friends.

The current program runs through December 18.  For $150 (Canton Residents, $198 for non-residents) a member of the BLOCK staff will pick up a student from school, take them to the BLOCK center located at 44237 Michigan Avenue, where a full range of activities from video games to tutoring is available, with pick-up at 6:30pm.  If that 6:30 pick-up is difficult, a shuttle will bring a teen home. 

So, come hang out with your friends, or make new ones,  For more information on the BLOCK program, go to
