The growth of juvenile crime in a small town starts a movement for the building of a youth center.

The Teen-Agers, Freddy Trimball (Freddie Stewart), Dodie Rogers (June Preisser), Lee Watson (Warren Mills), Betty Rogers (Noel Neill), Roy Donne (Frankie Darro) and the rest of Monogram's non-delinquent juveniles, think otherwise and, while the mayor does buy the warehouse, he is forced to donate it to the Youth Center committee.
