Middle School/Teen Center
The Middle School/Teen Center is a unique facility for Fort Irwin Middle School youth and teens. Middle School youth and teens participate in the development of the programming and activities offered at the Middle School/Teen Center through participation in the Boys and Girls Club of America's Keystone Club. The Middle School/Teen Center offers many exciting opportunities to visit Southern California fun spots and adventure parks. A computer and homework lab occupies a big portion of the teen center where teens are able to broaden their academic needs. Specialized classes are offered to help Middle School youth and teens prepare for higher education or employment possibilities. It is "their" special place. You may reach us at 760-380-3732.
Youth Sports is an active branch of Child and Youth Services (CYS) that offers programs in soccer, softball, t-ball, baseball, cheerleading, volleyball and basketball for ages 4 - 18. During the summer, tennis lessons, soccer camp, basketball camp, and golf camp/lessons are also offered. Parents are highly encouraged to serve as coaches on their children's athletic teams. Call 760-380-7044 for more information.
For teens living on-post, employment is for the most part limited to the installation unless they have their own transportation. Public transportation between Fort Irwin and Barstow is not available on weekends nor during after school hours. Some teens on-post also work after school as baggers at the commissary or at Burger King. Babysitting is also an excellent way to earn extra money.
During the summer months, the American Red Cross normally offers a Youth Volunteer Program in which young people can gain work experience volunteering in various agencies on-post.
