This is the place for you if you're between the ages of 13 and 18
Our awesome space includes three rooms dedicated to skateboarding, video games (Xbox One & PS4), movies and music.
We have comfortable couches, a pool table, ping pong table, air hockey, foosball, guitars, Wi-Fi and a kitchen to make delicious treats or a simple cup of tea.

The Interact Club of Whistler is for youth ages 12 to 18 and they meet every Wednesday at the Youth Centre between 4 to 5 p.m. The next meeting is January 4th, 2017. For more information check out the group's Facebook page.
In December, the club got together and filled 13 different Christmas stockings for Whistler Community Services Christmas hamper program. The youth chose to use some of their club funds to support this program and they went out into the community to collect charitable donations to add to the stockings. They brought in all the items they had collected and stuffed 13 stockings.
The Rules at YC are Simple
All local and visiting youth are asked to respect themselves, respect others and respect the space.
There are YC staff present when the centre is open. The staff are there to listen , hang out, play pool and can connect youth to more specific help and resources if needed.
The YC has been operating for over 10 years and is a Resort Municipality of Whistler program.
