Youth drop-in programs


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, youth drop-in programs are suspended. A number of registered low-cost programs for teens/ youth are being offered. Visit our Children and Youth Programs and Services page for a listing of programs available.


Providing safe places for youth to have fun and learn new skills is an important element of every healthy community. Ours is no different.

Youth Services at the City of Kitchener helps coordinate these opportunities through our youth drop-in programs, which run year-round in every neighbourhood.

Our drop-in programs are:

  • open to youth, ages 11 to 17 (Check program locations for specific age requirements)
  • fully supervised
  • Low or no cost

Youth Drop-in is designed to provide a safe, supportive, and supervised space for youth to hang out.  It offers optional and flexible recreation and leisure programs tailored to the specific needs and wants of program participants. Our programs give youth in every part of our city a chance to play sports, games and music, make art and crafts, learn to cook, and more.
