ADEL, GA (WALB) -

Adel, GA (WALB) –  The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Cook County has opened its first teen center.

The new teen center has a lounge and games rooms, a place for 13 to 18-year olds to relax and have fun.

The organization used to be housed at the old middle school and mainly served younger children.

In September, the club moved to the old Cook County High School building on highway 41.

Now the kids also have access to a larger gym, football field, and theater. 

"We've been given a million dollar facility and we have to be a million dollar organization and we plan on giving that to the kids of Cook County," said Chief Volunteer Officer Ronald Mitchell.

"I really like coming out here and seeing the same kids every day after school," said Volunteer Taylor Waldren.

The Boys and Girls Club of the Cook County Area currently serves 19 teens and 100 kids ages 6 to 12.
