Pelham LOFT 

The Pelham LOFT, started by PACT’s 2016 summer interns, is the name given to the “pop-up” teen center in Pelham, which works with local groups and businesses to plan teen events at different locations around town. Visit the Pelham LOFT website to learn about upcoming teen events and volunteer opportunities. And follow the Pelham LOFT on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to get involved

If you are a Pelham teenager looking to get involved with Pelham LOFT and PACT’s Youth Leadership Council, email Sarah Buckley, PACT’s Youth Advocate. The YLC meets every other Sunday evening at the J Cafe, planning Pelham LOFT events and working on other projects related to issues that impact youth in Pelham.
