Agency Information

Description (Agency)

The Town of Halton Hills Youth Centres is committed to the development of recreation programming that promotes an active, social and educational environment for youth visiting the space. Recreation continues to play an important role on the health care continuum and is a conduit for single-point access to a variety of health and social services.  Participants range from ages 12 – 24 years for daily recreation programming and wrap-around services by various partner agencies.  Youth are able to come and go to each location freely and there are no barriers to entry and no cost to participate. There are two youth centres in Halton Hills with locations in Acton and Georgetown. Both youth centres are operated by trained Town of Halton Hills staff in partnership with social service agencies like Reach Out Centre for Kids (ROCK),ADAPT and Support House.

Aligning with the priorities of the Youth Service Delivery Model, youth have the opportunity to participate and engage in the following at the centres:

 ·        Recreation and socialization opportunities including physical fitness and active living

·        Food security

·        On-site mental health and addictions supports and obtain referral services to which they may otherwise not have access

·        Increased life skills through participation in workshops from partner agencies

·        Service navigation

·        Youth leadership and community involvement

Established 2006
