BANGOR- The Bangor YMCA was presented with a $5,000 check from Zonta on Wednesday night.
It was just one of five grants they’re receiving from Zonta.
The money will go towards the Teen Center’s leadership program.
That includes their Youth & Government and Teens to Work programs.
“Our goal is that we prepare the teens so when we put them out there to everyone else, they will be ready and become very productive citizens of the community,” said Diane Dickerson, the Bangor YMCA CEO.
Dickerson says that more than two-thousand teens have used the center since it opened last February.
