Middle School / Neighbourhood Drop-in
In addition to providing programs and activities at the New West Youth Centre and Queensborough Community Centre, New West Youth Services also hosts after school drop-ins at local middle schools during the school year on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays!
What happens at Middle School/Neighbourhood Drop-in?
New West Youth Services facilitates drop-in programs that have less structure then a traditional recreation program. This leaves room for the youth to be the leaders of their experience and allowing the program to have a low barrier to entry to create a space where everyone is welcome. Youth can hang out with friends, play sports, challenge our staff to a game or create their own fun! We like to think of our middle school drop-in programs as a first step to independence. This means youth are able to come and go as they please, with parameters set up for them with parents and guardians. Don’t worry -we have trained youth workers on every shift to ensure safety!
