Welcome to The Beatbox archived website.

The Beatbox youth center pilot project ended in June 2003. With the exception of this messege, this website is as it was the day we closed.
Please check http://www.thebeatbox.org for information on current Beatbox projects.

Thanks for your support, we are currently working on replicating The Beatbox in other communities. Please contact rwells@thebeatbox.org if you are interested in being involved.

The Basic Beat

The Beatbox provides youth ages 10-24 a supervised, safe, and open atmosphere in the after school hours, on weekends, and during the summer. Our goal is to meet the needs of youth in the twenty-first century and to encourage arts, education, and positive recreational activities for the youth in our community.

The Beatbox is open to the entire community with no membership or user fees. We operate with five rules:

No Smoking
No Alcohol
No Drugs
No Weapons

We are open Mondays-Thursdays 11 a.m.-11 p.m., Fridays 11 a.m.-2 a.m. and Saturdays 1 p.m.-2 a.m. The Beatbox is closed on Sundays.
