In November 2010 the Town of Wasaga Beach proudly opened the doors to its first Youth Centre and since then has seen almost 1,300 different youth come through the doors to take advantage of the great space and free activities. In order to offer this free service to the youth of Wasaga Beach the Wasaga Beach Youth Centre (WBYC) must raise $10,000 in community support and an additional $6,500 through fundraising initiatives. To meet these goals we are turning to our community for support.
The Town of Wasaga Beach Youth Centre (WBYC) is a drop in centre offering free recreation opportunities for youth in grades 7 to 12. WBYC provides a safe, supervised place for youth to hang out, make new friends, find caring adult mentors, and participate in a variety of programs and events all at no cost to the youth. Activities at the Youth Centre include homework help, social activities and games, computers with internet access, Wii and Playstation video games, arts and crafts, sports and so much more.
Thank you to generous community focused organizations, businesses and individuals the Wasaga Beach Youth Centre is able to continue to offer recreation opportunities to the young people of Wasaga Beach at no cost. By offering our services at no cost we help to remove barriers that otherwise might prevent a young person from being able to access these beneficial programs. Youth are an integral part of our community and together we are able to provide them with the resources to help them become healthy and active citizens.
