Youth Outreach Worker (YOW)

YOWs can help youth:

  • Find a job
  • Volunteer
  • Participate in special events and recreation programs
  • Join their local Youth Advisory Council. In Youth Advisory Councils, youth work with their peers in a positive environment to make a difference in their community. Activities can include planning special events, advising the community centre on recreation programs for youth, and community service work.

Contact a Youth Outreach Worker (YOW) to find out more.

Youth Spaces

A brightly coloured logo with the text Youth Space
Look for this sign to find your community centre’s Enhanced Youth Space.

There are two types of youth spaces available across the city: regular and enhanced.

Regular youth spaces have youth-centric programming during the week at different times. They might not be available every day of the week, so make sure to check ahead.

Enhanced youth spaces are supervised spaces that are open to youth 5-6 days a week. These spaces have stuff like WiFi, TV, gaming consoles, foosball tables, pool tables, computers, recording studios, photography labs, and study spaces. Free programs include photography, barbering and hairstyling, yoga, nail art, DJing and music recording.

Locations that are marked with an asterisk* are enhanced youth spaces.
