Youth Centres provide a safe and supervised facility for youth to engage in educational programs and leisure activities which encourage the growth of positive self-esteem. Youth who attend our centers are able to freely express their opinions without fear of judgment and are encouraged to participate in the development of programming. The participants’ ages range from 10 to 18 years
Participants are able to come and go to this program freely and are unsupervised once they leave the program. Centres offer a wide range of activities including sports, billiards, video games, movie nights, chat time, and guest presentations on current issues.They also offer internet access, homework assistance, peer mentoring, and educational workshops that will encourage making healthy life choices. The sites connect youth with the local community, encouraging volunteerism to make a difference. Centres pride themselves on being smoke, drug and alcohol-free venues for young people to interact in a safe and non-judgmental. This good deed was nominated by Keri Puddy from our Sudbury branch.
