Older children, 13-18 years old, need a place all their own, so CYS hosts Middle School/Teen Centers just for them. The purpose of Middle School/Teen Center is to promote positive youth development by helping young people develop the skills they will need to become successful and contributing members of their society.
MS/T provides programs that focus on four core services areas: Sports & Fitness; Arts, Recreation & Leisure; Life Skills, Leadership & Citizenship; and Mentoring, Intervention & Support Services. These core services emphasize that youth are encouraged to develop a variety of skills, which include teamwork, creativity, self-discipline, decision making, problem-solving, respect, responsible citizenship, conflict resolution, managing feelings, academic achievement, and empathy. Taken together, the four core service areas can be thought of as the road map to a destination of positive youth development. It is important to remember that they are only a map -- they are not program in and of themselves.
There are two MS/T facilities. One in Yongsan and one in Hannam Village.
