LODI — Assem­bly­man Jim Cooper, D-Elk Grove, hon­ored One-Eighty Teen Cen­ter as his Assem­bly Dis­trict Non­profit of the Year.

The teen cen­ter, at 17 W. Lock­e­ford St. in Lodi, has served the Lodi com­mu­nity since 2002. One-Eighty of­fers out­reach in the form of gang­pre­ven­tion, life skills classes, coun­sel­ing, af­ter­school pro­grams and more to youths and fam­i­lies in the lo­cal area. The cen­ter also runs Mo­bile OneEighty, a mo­bile home equipped with a skate shop, café and In­ter­net lounge and staffed by youth men­tors.

Cooper says the non­profit has stayed true to its mis­sion of pro­vid­ing teens a place to play com­bined with pur­pose­ful ac­tiv­i­ties, men­tor­ships, and sup­ports sys­tems.

One-Eighty Teen Cen­ter was pre­sented with a Res­o­lu­tion dur­ing a spe­cial cer­e­mony on the State Assem­bly floor. — Oula Miq­bel
