Creative spaces for teens.


Createch is a physical space for teens to gather, access tools needed to pursue interests and spark new passions, and be encouraged by mentors who support their individual growth.  Each of our five Library and Parks spaces is different and shaped by teens, mentors, neighborhoods, and community partners. Our flagship site is Createch Studio at the Arlington Hills Community Center, a persistent space open after school, five days a week. Our four other Createch Labs are held in multipurpose rooms throughout Saint Paul one day a week.
