A little history for you:

Back in 2010, New Westminster youth were in need of a safe, fun and affordable place to connect with friends in the community, while seniors from the Century House Recreation Centre for adults over fifty had expressed interest in gaining access to new amenities, such as a computer lab.


The City’s Youth Advisory Committee had advocated for a Youth Centre since 2003; however, neither the funding nor appropriate location were available.


The City decided to address both the youth and seniors’ needs simultaneously by building a 4,000 square foot co-located Youth Centre with Century House Recreation Centre. New Westminster opened the doors of the New West Youth Centre on September 15, 2010, providing a dedicated space to youth (between the ages of thirteen to eighteen) and access to seniors (outside of the peak hours for youth). Through the development of the Youth Centre, the Youth Services and Century House partnership has allowed for a unique intergenerational relationship to form.
