September 2019


Our volunteers are the greatest!

The picture above shows our volunteer Asa helping out a young visitor in our skatepark.  That first drop-in can be a little intimidating, so it's great to have a helping hand!

We rely upon a phenomenal group of folks who volunteer their time to help us provide a safe, positive, and fun place for our visitors to invest time and build community.  They play a critical role in our ability to maintain our affordable $5 admission fee, plus they love to invest in the lives of the young people who visit 3MP.  

Thanks to everyone who serves here!  If you'd like to become a 3MP volunteer click here to apply.

Backpack Event Smashes Records

Our 3rd annual School Supplies Event held on August 6 shattered all previous records!
