When it comes to meeting youth where they are at, innovative drop-in centres have historically been one Youth Unlimited’s flagship innovations. Across Greater Vancouver, specialized drop-in programs are run from an airplane hangar, a renovated mechanics shop, a refurbished house and multiple retrofitted mobile RVs. There, youth hang out while getting encouragement and support for safer and healthier life choices from dedicated staff and volunteers. Depending on the centre, there are limitless possibilities of what’s happening in the space at any given time. Most centres are known for a few key programs or activities — ranging from meals to games and activities, Alpha to art, counselling group to life skills. YU is exceedingly grateful for Coast Capital Savings’ support of the Street Life program.
