Youth Centre and LUNA
Looking for a safe environment to hang with friends or make new ones? The Youth Centre (YC) offers a variety of programs, services and activities for youth aged 13 to 18.
Whether you’re looking for a casual environment to meet up with friends, a spot to try your latest skateboard tricks, or a place to challenge your friends to a game of pool or foosball, the YC is the place for you! If gaming is more your thing, the YC is your gateway to PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360, widescreen TV, and free Internet access. For foodies, the YC has its own concession stand, and offers ice cream and free baked goods.
Located in the lower level of Millennium Place at 4335 Blackcomb Way in Whistler Village, the YC is open Friday from 3:30 to 11 p.m. and Saturday from 6 to 10 p.m.
- FREE yoga every Thursday 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.
- FREE Starbucks baked goods every Friday and Saturday, as well as $3 dinners.
The rules are simple: all local and visiting youth are asked to respect themselves, respect others and respect the space. The YC always has two staff members onsite to monitor activities and provide assistance. It's a place staffed with people that can listen and relate, and, if need be, connect youth to more specific help.
Check out the YC today! For full details, visit the YC website or call 604-935-8187.
