The Spot is located in the Yorkgate Mall and offers programs and services for youth between the ages of 13-29 years of age. Our youth programs are committed to increasing and building the leadership skills of youth, optimizing their personal, social, and vocational competency in order to achieve his or her full potential, ultimately reducing the effects of poverty. The goal of our programs is to prevent violence and drug misuse as well as to promote healthy lifestyle choices. This is done through social, educational, art and recreational programming, after-school programs, leadership and mentoring programs, drop-ins, outings, volunteer and employment opportunities. The benefits include: making new friends, gaining leadership skills, contributing to the community and opening minds to new ideas (violence prevention, anti-racism, sexual health, peer mentoring, alcohol and drugs). Youth may receive community service hours. The Spot works with partnering organizations to deliver even more programs to youth by sharing space, providing support, and collaborating on programs together.
