What is this project about?

The Drop is a safe, inclusive, non-denominational space for youth aged 12+ years old to meet with friends, learn new skills, connect with positive adult role models, access free Wifi, access healthy food, and take part in a variety of activities.

Its mission is to celebrate and support youth. It operates on the values of inclusivity and diversity, respects and honours all individuals, and offers a space free from discrimination.

The Drop was initially established in summer 2021, as part of the Near North District School Board’s (NNDSB) wellness camp program. NNDSB contracted SYC to execute The Drop. The Drop was well received by youth, servicing an average of 10 participants per day and a total of 154 participants throughout the summer.
