New Middle-School Youth Center Now Open in Marion

A new youth center is now open in Marion.

The new center is at 440 S. 15th St. and opened through a collaboration with the Boys & Girls Clubs and the Marion Youth Coalition.

Organizers said the coalition is a group of more than 20 non-profit agencies that formed just over a year ago to address a lack of resources for middle school students after class is out for the day.
