The Youth Centre’s (YC) mandate is to create a safe and stimulating environment for all youth to call their own.
The YC functions primarily as a drop-in centre for youth (ages 13 to 18) with referral services to resources (such as mental, sexual health, and educational resources).
The YC has been operating for over 10 year and is a Resort Municipality of Whistler program.
Youth Centre Space
The YC includes:
- Ping pong table
- Pool table
- Skateboard, min-ramp, rails
- Free internet and computers
- Widescreen TV
- Xbox360, PlayStation 3, Wii
- Art supplies
- FREE yoga every Thursday 5:30 to 7 p.m.
- FREE Starbucks baked goods every Friday and Saturday, as well as $3 dinners
Stay tuned for upcoming events.
The rules are simple: all local and visiting youth are asked to respect themselves, respect others and respect the space.
The YC is staffed with people, who will listen and can relate, and, if need be, connect youth to more specific help.
Youth Centre hours of operation are Fridays from 3:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. and Saturdays from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
