The Uxbridge Youth Centre is a free drop-in centre for youth ages 11 and up. As a drop-in centre, the UYC opens its doors to local youth after school in order to provide them with a safe and supervised space where they can spend their free time. At anytime between 3-8pm from Monday to Friday, they are invited to drop by and hang out. What they do with their free time at the UYC is up to them! Whether they enjoy crafting, cooking, playing board games, surfing the web, watching movies, or just hanging out with friends – we’ve got something for them!
We provide youth with craft supplies for DIY projects, ingredients for snack recipes, computers to access the internet and do homework, video game consoles to play games, guitars to jam out on, access to sports equipment, a huge collection of modern and classic board games, and much more – all for free!
In addition to our drop-in hours, the UYC runs weekly workshops and programming that youth are invited to try out while they’re visiting our space. Check out our Programs section for more information on our regularly scheduled workshops and special events!
The UYC runs a variety of free programs daily, ranging from paint nights to casual sports programs. If you would rather just hang out during drop-in hours then that's okay too! Our programs are always optional. See our calendar for upcoming programs.
No need to wait for the next crafting workshop to get creative! Our supplies are always available for our visitors to enjoy whenever they want. Feel free to dig through our craft bins to find what you need for your next do-it-yourself masterpiece!
We have an incredible collection of both tabletop and digital games to keep you entertained during your down time. Take on a dragon in the D&D tabletop RPG, escape a sinking island in the Fireball Island board game, or score a few goals in NHL on PS4!
We provide free computer access so you can stay connected. Browse social media, watch a bit of YouTube, build something cool in Minecraft, or maybe even do some homework!
The UYCs Healthy Eats program ensures that free snacks are always available to our youth. Help yourself to a light snack or visit our kitchen to whip up something extra delicious!
We have guitars for your next jam session, sports equipment for an impromptu game of street hockey, foosball and air hockey tables, a massive movie collection, and much more!
