The SPACE Youth Centre is the only youth-led drop-in centre in the downtown Hamilton core for youth between the ages of 13-24. The SPACE, which stands for Sharing Power And Centering Experience, is a community hub that is created for and by a diverse group of young people who are invested in building inclusion, youth leadership, and change in our community.
At The SPACE we believe that by sharing a space for programs, music, dance, empowerment, learning and unlearning, and caring for each other we are building more than just a centre but a healthy community where everyone is able to grow and exist as their best self. Our community is invested in programming, resource support, and supporting mental wellness as a way to live into this vision.
We understand that identities and experiences can change the way that people experience the world and we encourage folks of all identities to come and share space with us!
Sharing Power And Centering Experience:
Putting youth voices first, hosting space to exist and learn together, and working together toward social change.
A community where youth are able to be their whole selves, in an equitable and just social context.
