The Hive

The Hive is the home of The Howell Teen Center—a socially safe and healthy environment for all middle school and high school students. The Hive is an place where teens can gather with friends, interact with adults on relatively equal footing, gain recognition for their efforts and skills, and make choices about what they will do and how they will do it. Teens can use the space to socialize, take classes, do homework, watch movies, and more.

The Kellogg Family Foundation partnered with The Hive to support the development of The Kellogg Family Foundation Cyber Café. The Cyber Café was created to provide our youth with the resources they need to succeed. The area features six computer workstations. Each workstation is equipped with 1TB hard drive, Microsoft Office, Adobe Photoshop, and Wi-Fi.

“At The Hive, we know with every positive benefit of technology comes a negative one.  Part of our mission here is to provide a healthy environment and this goes without saying for our Cyber Café as well.  Our computers are monitored and protected by Bulldog IT, allowing the youth to be themselves and use the resources at hand in a safe way.”

“The Kellogg Family Foundation is a true community partner with The Hive and the “Kellogg Family Foundation Cyber Café” is just the first upgrade from the Foundation.  Stay tuned for updates in the next couple months!”
