Twilight Centers

We know how integral our Twilight Centers are to providing safe spaces for our young people. Twilight Centers offer programming and extended hours at select schools so young people in the city have a safe place to go during the evenings for free.

This season, we invite young people to visit our six high school Twilight Centers (ages 12-18) and two middle school Twilight Centers (ages 10-14) in the evening for board games, esports, open gym shootaround, and more! Twilight is open to MPS and non-MPS students alike.

Summer Twilight Hours: June 7 - Aug. 11

Please be aware: Due to several site closures for maintenance this summer, three traditional Twilight Centers will not be open.

South Division, Madison, and Pulaski are CLOSED this summer. To fill the need for the community, Twilight programming will also open at Walker Campus (1712 S. 32nd St.) and Hayes Bilingual School (971 W.  Windlake Ave.) this summer.
