Here you can find frequently asked questions about who we are, what we do, why, and how you can get involved.
- What is MYTHIRDPLACE?
MYTHIRDPLACE cultivates mentoring environments so that teens are equipped to revitalize their communities and become thriving adults. We do this through a variety of programs, including an after-school program, special events, and upcoming programs like one-on-one mentoring, job certification, teen resource network, and young men’s conference.

- Is MYTHIRDPLACE an academic program?
MYTHIRDPLACE is a holistic mentoring organization. We recognize that academics plays an important role in the lives our teens and are always exploring how we can help our teens thrive in this area. For this reason, we spend the first 45 minutes of our after-school program in study hall, with volunteers available to help our teens with their work. However, our focus is on building and growing our teens in every area of their life, not just academics.
- Is MYTHIRDPLACE a free program?
There is no cost for teens to register for MYTHIRDPLACE and be a part of our programs. There are occasional costs to pay for special events, but our goal is to make sure that cost is never a barrier to participation for any teen. If there is ever difficulty affording participation in an event, we will work with the teen and their family to figure out a way forward.
- What is the age range for students at MYTHIRDPLACE?
MYTHIRDPLACE is open to young people in 6th through 12th grade.
- Are the hours the same during the Summer?
The hours for MYTHIRDPLACE are different during the Summer. Instead of our being open during after-school hours, we will have various events and activities multiple times a week. Our staff is always available though through text, phone call, or email if they are not in the office.
