The HQ Teen Space

​The HQ Teen Space has been created to provide the teenagers in our community with a friendly and safe environment in which to socialize with their friends and to be themselves, away from their home and school commitments.  The HQ Teen Space will support the development of a sense of community among the teenagers in KAUST and will be a venue to socialize, share, learn, work, and play together.

The Space will be overseen by a group of volunteer Youth Workers who will work with the teenagers to develop the space and the programming/initiatives that take place there. (See Map)
