Youth Drop-Ins

For youth in grades 5 – 12 – all welcome!

Youth Drop-Ins have been providing youth in our community a fun and safe place to ‘hangout’ with friends for more than 30 years! Over the years the program has changed to meet the needs and interest of youth in our community. The following are descriptions and highlights of what each program offers to the public.
