LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A financial company is pledging $600,000 for a teen center at the Boys & Girls Club of Lansing.

The Jackson Teen Zone will be named for Jackson National Life Insurance Co. It will offer technology for a financial literacy program as well as a literature and movies program and other after-school opportunities.

More than 1,500 teens use the Boys & Girls Club for a variety of programs. Construction will begin in February and probably last four months.

Jackson National Life president James Sopha says it’s a privilege to work with the Boys & Girls Club. He says the company has 2,500 employees in Lansing.
