Squamish Youth Resource Centre

A great way to grow up

This free meeting place in Squamish provides both a drop-in and structured program. The centre is for local teenagers 13-18 years old but young adults between 19 and 24 years of age can also access some services.

  • A safe place to drop in and hang out
  • Movies, video games, photography
  • Board games and crafts
  • Pool table, foosball, ping pong, air hockey
  • Planned daily activities — like crafts, games, meals, and movie nights
  • Events like the annual 99 Grind Skatepark Jam
  • Access to participate in Youth Week every May
  • Recreational and cultural out-trips
  • Activities at Brennan Park Recreation Centre (public skating, open gym nights, etc.)
  • Healthy snacks every day
  • Advocacy and support to access resources, services and information
  • Free shower facilities, clothes and hygiene products, condoms and pregnancy tests
  • Emergency food bank and access to food hampers through the local Food Bank
  • Someone to talk to, confidentially
  • And so much more!
