Largo Teen programs are designed specifically for middle and high school students. These programs give teens a place to hang out, socialize with friends, and just have a good time. Teen programs are available at Highland Recreation Complex and Southwest Recreation Complex.

To help expand horizons, create friendships, and make a difference in Largo, Largo teens are encouraged to apply for the City of Largo Recreation, Parks & Arts Teen Volunteer Program. LTV empowers middle and high school teenagers to become leaders and ambassadors of their community by working directly with Largo Recreation staff. Teens will learn valuable life experiences and create friendships and memories. The LTV program is service-based, rewarding, and taps into teen interests.
