Tried and Trusted Teen Drop-In Center in N.D.G
Westhaven Elmhurst Community Recreation Association s that the transition from childhood to adulthood can often be one of the trickiest time periods in a person’s life. While most people know that being a teenager is a fun and fulfilling time, the reality is that it is also one that can be dotted with several life hurdles that need to be successfully navigated.
From learning to drive and taking important exams to getting your first part-time job and learning how to cook for yourself, being a teenager isn’t always easy. It is for these reasons that we at Westhaven Elmhurst Community Recreation Association make a concerted effort to make sure that teenagers in our local community in N.D.G. are as prepared and empowered as possible to deal with whatever life has to throw at them.
If you think that your teenage son or daughter might benefit from the range of teen-specific services we offer then please do not hesitate to contact us today.
Teen Drop-In Service
Aimed directly at teens ages 14-18 years old, we use our centre to encourage young people to take part in productive opportunities such as DJ-ing and learning about the music industry in a safe and secure environment.
On top of that, we also offer workshops to help our teenage members prepare for their future endeavours, whatever they may be. This includes classes on how to make a CV that stands out from the crowd, mock interviews, university application forms and what it takes to successfully apply for a job.
The drop-in centre allows teens in N.D.G and around Montreal to have a safe place to go to further their skills and thirst for knowledge.
King of the Court
As one of the most popular sports among our participants at Westhaven Elmhurst Community Recreation Association, it makes sense that basketball should be front and centre when it comes to our teen services. The King of the Court tournament is a prime example of the important role that basketball plays in this respect.
Taking place on the first Saturday of every month, the King of the Court is made up of two teams of four facing off in a basketball game to showcase their skills and determine which team is the best. With approximately 20 teenage players taking part, this game is a great way for teenagers in the neighbourhood to express themselves in a positive way.
Teen-Driven Community Engagement
At Westhaven Elmhurst Community Recreation Association, we are very proud of the fact that a group of our teens have taken part in a project under the management of the Cote-des-Neiges Black Community Association. The project was tasked with getting the input of youths in our community. Fourteen delegates from Westhaven participated in the June 2016 summit along with over 50 other teens from across Montreal.
