Teenager Opens Youth Center

The town of Mayo is not what the younger residents call a "happening" place to be until you step inside the Maximum Impact Youth Center.

“It was a vision that was in my heart that I wanted to do, especially for this community because it's a small town and there's not much to do here. So I just wanted a good clean, Christian atmosphere here,” shares Tracy Landen, the founder of Maximum Youth Center.

"I think it's a really great place. It's nice to have somewhere to come on a Friday night without having to worry about getting in trouble,” adds Mayo teen Carson Rhodenizer.

With the help of city and county officials, family, and friends, Tracy was able to give young people a safe place to fellowship and have fun.

The center offers a host of games, food, and music.

"Mostly, I like playing pool and air hockey,” says Youth Center participant Kiana Williams.

Flourishing under the dream of a 17-year-old student, the Maximum Impact Youth Center is making an impact on all ages.

"I love to shoot pool. Around here, the only place you can go to shoot, if you're up in age, would be the bar. But, now I can come here and have a good time,” says participant Nancy Davis.

Along with the games, Bible study and guest speakers are also available, all a part of Tracy’s vision.

The Maximum Impact Youth Center is open Fridays and Saturdays from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. and after school Mondays through Wednesdays.
