for The Launch Pad Teen Center’s

Can You See It?
Capital Campaign

The Launch Pad is kicking off its fundraising campaign with a community Launch Party to celebrate its new space and plans for the future. The event will feature local food trucks, live music, a bounce house, face painting, community booths, tours of the new space and visual renderings of the future of The Launch Pad’s new location.
The Can You See It? Capital Campaign is a two-year initiative to raise the necessary funds to transform a 3000-square-foot warehouse into a 5400-square-foot teen center, complete with a tutoring lab, café (where teens will gain job experience), art center, computer center and youth center space for teens to develop relationships and personal skills.
Attendees at the Launch Party will be among the first to see the future of The Launch Pad, via digital presentations, large-scale renderings, personal tours and detailed informational texts highlighting each room of The Launch Pad’s future space following renovations. Teens in attendance will also have the opportunity to sign up for tutoring and service opportunities.
