      History

      The movement to create a teen center in Mira Mesa began over two decades ago when teens told community leaders they had "nothing to do and nowhere to go." When the old Mira Mesa Library was vacated in 1992, teens began advocating for the conversion of the building into a teen-run cafe and retail store. The Mira Mesa Town Council soon voted a Teen Center as it's top community priority. In 1995, the San Diego City Council approved $870,000 in Community Trust Fund money to convert the old library into the teen center. In 1997, a door-to-door community campaign generated support for a $250,000 start-up grant provided by the State of California. Epicentre opened on January 1, 1999. Epicentre has become part of a movement where teens are treated as equal partners in their own community.
