The Sal Cosenza Teen Center at the Piper Branch is free to all Club members from 7th to 12th grade (with a current $25 annual membership). Teen Center staff offer homework support, formal and informal mentoring and guidance, and a variety of programs designed to help each member achieve academic success, learn good character and citizenship and develop healthy lifestyles.

Named after a longtime supporter of youth services in the Scottsdale area, the Virginia G. Piper Branch opened in Scottsdale Ranch in 1991. In December 2010 construction began to renovate the Piper Branch which now offers a full service Teen Center that opened in May 2011.
