“After school, I used to walk by this cool looking house, and always wondered what was going on in there. With a “MDJ” sign out front and artwork by the window, I could see a pool table and work out room inside. I’ve heard that any teen can go in. When I finally got the courage to walk in, it changed my life. I discovered a safe space. A place for me to be me, to discover who I really was with no judgment. A place where I could play music, play games, workout and do my homework. A place where I could talk and people will listen.”
A safe place for teenagers to be, discover and grow.
