NGen Youth Centre is the only youth-led space in Hamilton where young people (ages 13 to 24) have the opportunity to bring forth their ideas, with the mentorship of staff, to create and develop new programs, engaging in their communities.
We are located in the core of downtown Hamilton, right across from the MacNab bus terminal. We are an unincorporated organization who has a collaborative partnership with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Hamilton, as well as St. Joseph’s Youth Wellness Centre. We also have partnerships with organizations across Hamilton and the Greater-Toronto-Area.
Westmount Secondary School has been identified amongst our youth leaders and staff as a community who we have not yet reached out to about where we are, who we are, and what we have to offer your youth!
At NGen we offer a space for young people to just “be”, without judgement or trying to categorize youth identity into a box. In addition, we provide core programming that youth may choose to participate in such as beginner dance lessons, cooking class, DJ lessons, knitting, homework help and Y.A.C. (Youth Action Council).
Getting involved in NGen is also a great way to complete volunteer hours!
All of our programs are free and a bus ticket is provided to all youth who participate in a program to ensure accessibility is not a barrier to participation.
Our regular hours of operation are as follows;
Tuesdays: 3:00 – 6:30pm
Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays: 3:00 – 9:00pm
Attached you will also find an example of our monthly program calendar and the NGen brochure.
