Crossroads Youth Drop-In Space

4:30 PM | 173 Colborne Street

Come join us for the Crossroads Youth Drop-In Space, a fun and engaging recreational program for youth aged 13-19 held at the Library's Main Branch! This program is designed to provide a safe and inclusive environment for youth to just hang out with one another and also participate in a variety of activities and workshops that promote skills building, personal growth, and community engagement.

The program will offer a range of activities, including art therapy, movie nights, and other recreation-based events. In addition to these activities, there will be workshops on various topics, including goal-setting, self-identity, and communication skills. The goal of these workshops is to provide youth with the tools and resources they need to navigate the challenges of adolescence and develop into well-rounded adults.

We also understand that each youth has unique needs and aspirations, which is why we have included the option for 1:1 support with a youth outreach worker. These workers will be available to provide guidance, advice, and support to any youth who may need it.

For more information, contact Megan  (Youth in Transition Worker – megan.potvin@ymcahbb.ca), or Jess (Youth Outreach Worker - yow.jess@wesley.ca)

An experienced Dungeon Master (DM) will guide you through the game, serve as referee and storyteller, and keep you engaged in a linked series of adventures (commonly referred to as a "campaign").
