Recognized as a best practice model for youth spaces by the city, our Youth Arcade is a safe and positive meeting place for more than 1,750 neighbourhood youth, ages 13-21, many of whom are at-risk. They socialize, attend workshops, develop leadership and conflict resolution skills, and participate in alternative sports and recreation activities like our new music club. We also offer educational support, community service for young offenders, and our annual youth career mentoring conference.
In 2013, we developed multi-disciplinary partnerships around trauma faced by young women resulting in recognition from Health Canada, Status of Women Canada, and the Toronto Community Foundation’s Vital Ideas.
