The Neighbourhood Recreation Experiences Team from the City of Edmonton is excited to introduce a new program model for youth that will be offered year round. Starting in July a free, drop-in youth program will be offered in six major City of Edmonton Recreation Centres:
- The Meadows
- St. FX
The program branded “ YEGyouth” will be open to youth ages 13-17 who are members and non-members. No fee is attached to the program-participation is free, and no registration is required. Youth can drop in to the program, which runs for three hours once a week, to participate in sports, art, fitness, cultural activities etc. We will continually be exploring with, and introducing youth to new experiences and activities. In the fall this program will be expanded to include up to 6 neighbourhood/school locations.
Information about the Summer Youth Drop-In program can be found on the COE website here.
The poster for all of our Summer Youth Programs and Events can be found here.
The NRE Team will continue to host Free Youth Events this summer. Information for these events can be found on the COE website here. Youth can follow us on facebook and Instagram as well @yegyouth.
This summer, Neighbourhood Recreation Experiences is animating the parking lot at the Coliseum. Basketball hoops, hockey nets and temporary skateboard equipment will be made available for unsupervised, spontaneous, public use, daily, from 5am-11pm. The space will also be utilized for both City of Edmonton events and other user groups. The poster for the Drop-In Recreation Activity Area can be found here. Basic information about the activities at the Coliseum can be found here.
