FAQ

At Chain Reaction, we pride ourselves on being a positive source of inspiration for our teens. We have compiled the most common questions our parents have concerning Chain Reaction. Find the answers in our FAQ. If you have additional questions, make sure to call us at the Center.

How much does it cost to join?

Membership fees are $75 for new members and $55 for renewing members. We ask that families pay what they can with a $5 minimum fee and CR will gladly cover the remaining amount; we understand that not all families may be able to afford the membership fee.

When is your membership drive?

Chain Reaction is open to join year-round.

Where are you located and what time do you open?

We are located at 1000 College Blvd. Building 98. The entrance is located on the 2nd floor of building 98 (behind Kids College). We are open Monday through Friday 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. during the school year and 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. during the summer. Even after the center closes, teens will be accompanied by staff until their parent/guardian arrives.

When are the Quartery Meetings?

Our Quarterly Meetings are held January, April, July, and October on the second Monday of each month from 5:00 - 6:30pm. These meetings are peer-led, giving the teens the opportunity to meet other teens and interact with the CR staff in an interactive, teen-friendly environment. Teens find out different ways to get involved in the community through volunteer and leadership opportunities.

How do you keep track of hours/progress?

Chain Reaction uses an online tracking system to track hours and progress. We show each teen how to use this program at their Orientation. Please call the Member Services Manager at 850-471-4685 or email info@mychainreaction.org for more information.

How can I get involved as a parent?

There are a couple of different ways you can get involved as a parent. You can become a Donor or you can become an Advocate. Our Advocates volunteer their time in different ways at our events. For more information, read our Chain Reaction Advocate section. If you want to get involved, make sure to click the purple "Join Us" button in the top-right corner and fill out the information.

What is Kid's College?

Kids' College is a summer program hosted by Pensacola State College where teen volunteers can serve as teacher assistants in professor and teacher-led classes adapted for kids ages 5-12. This is a full-time commitment and can take anywhere from 5 to 10 hours per day but is a GREAT way to accumulate a massive amount of volunteer hours while having a fun, meaningful experience during the summer. You must be a Chain Reaction member and must fill out a separate Kids' College application to participate. Contact staff for more information.
