Supporting the lives of our youth, and building safer communities. 

City Council can choose to provide Toronto’s youth and their families with safe, supervised, and enriching after-school spaces accessible to every one of our city’s neighbourhoods in the 2020 budget.

Toronto currently has 21 existing youth spaces (with two more on the way) that provide a supportive environment for activities, homework help, and access to trained youth outreach workers. But there are many gaps across our city, creating unequal access to these opportunities.

By adding an additional 18 spaces in existing community centres and library branches, almost every child will be within a 2km (roughly 24 minute) walk to a publicly-run youth program.

Fill out the form below to learn about the proposed Youth Hub near you, and tell your Councillor that you support young people having a safe and supportive after school place in their community and will be watching their vote on this issue.
