About The Old Firehouse Teen Center
The Old Firehouse Teen Center empowers teens through art and service leadership opportunities.
Located in the heart of downtown Redmond, teens in middle through high school are encouraged to join us to explore their passions, connect with friends, learn new skills, practice leadership among peers, and have a good time in a uniquely teen-centered space. We focus on process and youth voice in everything we do.
We celebrated our 25th anniversary in 2018 and are proud of our roots as the longest-standing all-ages event center in the Seattle area. We're growing and changing to reflect the interests of today's youth.
