The HIVE is a unique place for Nelsonville youth to hang out, have fun and enjoy a wide range of constructive activities for kids and young adults. We always have a bowl of fruit on the table along with a more substantial (and delicious) snack.
For the youngsters, we encourage creative play time and offer a range of activities like arts & crafts, lego challenge, outdoor adventures, bingo, ukulele lessons, pool tournaments, and frequent field trips. Swimming is a big deal in the summertime. Books, magazines and computers are always available for learning and healthy fun. Older youth serve as mentors, enjoy good company with each other and join in events throughout the community.
Community partners include the Athens County Public Libraries, Appalachian Peace & Justice Network, First Presbyterian Church of Nelsonville and Stuart's Opera House.
