The Essex Youth Centre is a youth drop-in centre, located behind Essex District High School. We promote a laid-back atmosphere where teens can stop by during their lunch, and after school. We provide many amenities for our community’s youth, including a television, video games, billiards, foosball, ping pong, air hockey, board games, card games, and more!
We also have a full kitchen where food is available for cheap prices! In addition to our regular menu, we also provide free fruit and cereal through our breakfast program.
On the last Thursday of every month, we offer free, confidential youth counselling services from a certified youth councilor.
Through our summer Helping Hands program, we provide employment for local youths, and free assistance with yard-work and household chores to seniors. We also offer free computer help for local seniors throughout the entire year.
Most important of all, we are a safe place for the youth of Essex County to hang out and socialize with their friends where bullying is never tolerated. We have only one rule: Respect.
