Get involved

Want to make a positive impact on the lives of the youth in our community? Here’s a few ways to get involved!

Donate

Our centre heavily relies on the generosity of our community members. Please consider donating monthly.

Your money goes towards running programs and activities for our youth, as well as providing them with a hot meal each night.

Looking for a more hands-on option to help youth in our community? Contact us to meet about volunteering!

We are always in need of volunteers to help supervise and mentor during youth centre hours, but also at our fundraising events.

Fundraisers

The QWYC hosts several fundraisers yearly. You can show your support for our local youth by volunteering with our fundraisers or taking part in them!
