TeenZone

The TeenZone is a partnership of the City of Westmount and the Westmount YMCA.

Mission 

The YMCA Teen Zone (located at the north end of the Westmount Recreation Center) is a place where teenagers between the ages of 12 and 17 can come after school and stay as long as they want. Designed for prevention and personal development, the Teen Zone welcomes all young people in an environment that is safe and free from discrimination, and it’s also free of charge. The Zone provides teens with a wide range of opportunities to form and develop meaningful relationships with peers and adults, and to participate in many different activities, both structured and unstructured.

 

Teen Zone during the Covid-19 Pandemic
During the pandemic the Teen Zone has continued to offer support to our youth virtually. We offer group activities and one-on-one intervention. Every week we have a different schedule to have a different variety of activities for youth.
