The Depot provides a safe place for town teens to informally hang out and a venue for scheduled events such as dinners, team events, car washes, band nights, dances and more. More importantly, it encourages community service opportunities for teens to see how they can make a difference in the world. It also gives the kids a point of contact with adults other than their parents when they need someone to talk to who believes in them.

When I was in high school, the Noroton Heights Depot provided my friends and I with, not only a safe place to hang out, but also a place where our local bands could play. Being a musician, it was always important to get as much exposure as possible! The events and volunteer work were perhaps some of the most fun times of my high school career. This place deserves as much support as it gave to me and my classmates!!!!

I have been involved w/The Depot for over 10 years now. Both my children hung out there and were fortunate enough that we lived close and they were able to walk. I have served on different committees during my time on the board and continue to support The Depot. Great staff!

I served on the Depot board for a few years and found the Depot to be the fun safe place for Darien High School students. The students get to do the most off the wall fun stuff there---jello wrestling, mechanical bull riding---(I wish I had things like that available when I was in school!) It really gives kids a healthy safe place to "hang out" and relax and be teens.

The Depot is a wonderful teen center serving students in Darien, CT. It is a terrific facility and the director, Janice Marzano is the best of the best! She is invaluable to the Depot and to the town of Darien. When my daughter was diagnosed with cancer in 1/07, Jamice and all of the kids and families of the Depot rallied and showed support in ways I never thought possible. It's a great place. Long live the Depot!
