Founded in 1974 by three "hippie glassblowers," Bullseye Glass Co produces internationally renowned glass materials in thousands of colors and finishes suitable for artistic endeavors of all kinds, such as mosaics and stained glass. Aside from being beautiful to look at, most of Bullseye's glasses are compatible for fusing and kilnforming—something that's especially important for glass artists to know. Bullseye also passes on the ancient art of glass shaping through artist-guided classes. Graduates of these kilnforming classes can return to craft additional treasures or explore the cyclical nature of art by turning a wineglass back into a sandbox.

While adults handle all of The Center @ 862's fundraising and fiscal management, the planning and promotion of events is up to a board of teens. The teens have thrown events including DJ parties, live-music nights, and video-game tournaments. Another such event: Mayhem Haunted House, the latest iteration of their yearly yelp-fest, partnered with Fright Room Productions, a cadre of scare experts who transform Supply Field into a deserted mansion that's maybe not so deserted after all. Thrills wait around every corner as patrons?and, if they're younger than 10, their parents?risk an encounter with ghosts, zombies, and ravenous monsters.
On off nights, the center accommodates teens from eighth graders through high schoolers as they play games of pool and pinball or snack on paninis and smoothies. Along with leisure activities, the center?s board schedules educational sessions such as practice SAT and ACT tests or babysitter training workshops, in which students learn bedtime-story alternatives to reading their algebra tests aloud.
