The Get-A-Way Youth Centre is open for ages 10 – 18, (if still in school) on Monday and Wednesday from 4-8 pm and Friday from 2-8 pm. Closed on holidays.
The Youth Centre is a developmental drop-in program for youth. Our goal is to provide the youth in our community with life skills, exercise and to provide them with a positive alternative to risky behaviour as well as a safe and bully free place for them to go. Within the Youth Centre, we strive to develop the character, confidence and connectedness of the youth by giving them opportunities to increase their ability to problem solve, work together with those who are younger or older than themselves, develop social and conflict resolution skills and to take on responsibility and ownership.
Activities include movie nights, pool tournaments, crafts, photography club, outdoor activities, kitchen social, annual Haunted House and much more!
We appreciate donations of all kinds to keep the Youth Centre up and running.
