Notice: Squamish Youth Resource Centre Closing
Unfortunately, due to an unforeseen and costly plumbing issue, the Squamish Youth Resource Centre will be permanently closing during the upcoming Spring Break (March 16, 2020).
The Youth Centre’s closure has been anticipated for some time now, as the current building has deteriorated to the point that it is beyond its safe and usable life, and cannot remain open.
Youth Programs & Services
Our goal is to minimize the impact the centre’s closing will have on local youth, by continuing to provide youth services and programming along with the District of Squamish and our community partners at a variety of locations throughout Squamish. Details on the program schedule and locations will be announced in coming weeks. Stay tuned.
A New Youth Hub is coming…
A new Youth Hub will open in the fall of 2021 in the Buckley Affordable Housing Project near Howe Sound Secondary School, with program and service delivery in alignment with the District of Squamish’s 2019 Youth Strategy.
SSCS is currently focused on fundrasing $1.5 million to build the new Youth Hub, and encourages the community to get involved with the Youth Hub Capital Campaign and give generously.
