Have tons of fun in a friendly environment
The MAT is designed specifically for YOUTH aged 11-19.
Please be advised that effective October 31, 2012 we have made some changes to our drop-in schedule to create more options for you. We will no longer be running a drop-in on Wednesday nights. If you are 13 and have previously attended on Wednesday you can now join our Monday nights. If you are 14 you can Join our Tuesday/Thursday crew! Wednesdays will soon be offering skills options to those youth who are interested. Possible options will inlcude graffiti art, guitar lessons, dj'ing lessons, hip hop dance classes etc. Stay tuned for further info as we transition to this new and exciting opportunity!!
Here is our new drop-in schedule:
Monday Drop in Center – Ages 11-13 (7-9:30)
Tuesday Drop in Center – Ages 14-19 (7-9:30)
Wednesdays - R.E.A.C.H - (Females only) (ages 14-19)
Thursdays - Urban Skillz (14-19) (7-9:30)
We recognize that some youth may be better suited in a specific age category regardless of their age, and as such, staff will have the discretion to determine which group they should attend, based on youth’s individual behavior.
We are located at 1405-8th Ave N. Lethbridge (at the Boys & Girls Club)
This program is a ‘drop in’ program, which means that you don’t need to sign up. You can just come when you want (between the hours of 6:30pm and 9:30pm) on the days available for your age group.
The MAT is FREE, so come out and enjoy some fun opportunities at no cost to you!
We offer a variety of things to do (floor hockey, basketball, Wii, movies, board games, cooking, etc.) We also offer various workshops and youth leadership opportunities.
We encourage you to let us know what you want to do so we can try our best to make it happen. After all, this program is for YOU!
****Some days, we will be going off site to do activities out in the community (swimming, bowling, mini golf etc, go karts, etc). These activities are optional. If you want to take part, you will need to be at the club at 6:30pm sharp. For those who do not want to go, the club will still be open for our regular drop in activities.
If you are between the ages of 14-18, and would like to become involved in our KEYSTONE Leadership group, please see the KEYSTONE section on this website.
