The youth drop-in center provides our young people with the opportunity to socialize in a supervised, safe, and inclusive environment, and to have access to games and other means of connecting outside of social media. During a recent focus group with youth from the area, participants clearly indicated that what they want and need is a space and time where they are not scheduled and where they can simply relax and transition after a busy school day.

By offering free and organized drop-in time, we give our youth the opportunity to unwind after school before going home or attending their other scheduled activities.
