We know how integral our Twilight Centers are to providing safe, fun spaces for our young people. At our Twilight Centers, Milwaukee Recreation offers programming and extended hours at select school locations 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 five Twilight Centers for board games, esports, open gym shootaround, field trips, college and career conversations, and more! Take your best friend or meet new friends at Milwaukee Recreation's Twilight Centers.
"It's a good environment for everybody. It helps kids stay out of trouble; have kids in here, supervised, having fun," rising high school senior Stevie James said. "[The staff] gave me a lot of knowledge, helping me plan for college and careers. Thinking about going to college, that's changing my life."
Twilight Centers are open to MPS and non-MPS students alike. Free snacks are available every night as well.
"It has an open gym, you can make friends, you can do a lot of stuff here... I feel like that's a good thing," rising seventh grader Aiden Miramontes said. "[The staff is] fun and they do different activities that I like."
