24 Apr
Crossroads Youth Drop-In Space

3:30 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)

Queer Youth Lounge

3:30 PM | 173 Colborne Street

Come join us for the Queer Youth Lounge for youth ages 12-18. A fun and engaging drop-in for identifying 2SLGBTQIA+ youth. The program will be held at Brantford Public Library Main Branch in the Program Room on the main floor. There will be snacks provided and lots of fun activities for youth. This drop-in is designed to provide a safe environment for identifying youth to meet other youth that identify, to help provide an understanding and to show connection. The attending youth will lead the program providing them all with the ability to share and voice their opinions to what they want to see happen at the drop-in. All youth deserve to be heard and this can be a place for that to happen.
