In Brief: Marin Youth Center to Close

The , a local hangout that provides activites for people ages 11 to 20, will be closing on Aug. 12, according to the Marin Independent Journal.

The center, located on 1115 Third St., opened in 2004. The Intel Clubhouse may stay open, but could not accomodate the 100 people who frequent the center daily. There are currently 10 employees, and four jobs would be saved if the clubhouse doesn't close.

Thomas Peters, president of the Marin Community Foundation which owns the center, told the Marin Indepent Journal that the deicision to close the MYC was not "based on performance problems with staffers or Bay Area Community Resources," the organziation that runs the program.
