We're happy to offer a variety of exciting recreational and social activities for pre-teens (age 10-12 years) and teens (age 13-18 years) at our youth centres. Youth have access to pool tables, foosball, ping-pong, card and board games–as well as TVs, computers, PS4 and free WiFi. They also have a chance to be part of a youth committee and get involved in city-wide projects. These committees allow youth to have a voice in what they would like to see happen at each centre. They look for ways to improve or enhance the facility, help out in the community, plan activities, events and trips and hold fundraisers.
