What is this new space?
The Thorndale Community Hub & Youth Clubhouse was envisioned by youth living in and around Thorndale to be a place where youth can gather, meet new friends, engage in social activities, and learn new skills. There are currently limited opportunities for youth, and considering the growth of the village we feel that it is important to give these younger residents opportunities and encourage their involvement in fostering a strong vibrant community. Additionally, we recognize that residents of all ages can benefit from opportunities to connect, share ideas and learn from each other and that is why this space is relevant and timely.
Location: 160 King Street, 2nd floor
As of Friday, July 16, 2021 the space is OPEN for use!
Thorndale Youth Clubhouse March Schedule
*The Youth Clubhouse is now back open starting the week of January 31st! We anticipate adding more programs and drop-in times in the near future, but due to the lockdown we will be doing a staggered re-opening*
Here is a summary of our reopening plan. We hope to see you soon! Just a reminder that all youth that comes to the Youth Clubhouse or participates in our programming must be signed up on recdesk as a Thorndale Visitor or Thorndale Member.
Youth who would like to attend must sign up for a membership with the BGC. A yearly membership costs $50/child, a one-time drop in costs $3. All proceeds from the memberships go back into the clubhouse. Please go to the link below.
*IMPORTANT: Currently, BGC is offering a FREE trial membership; however, it is only valid until November 30th, 2021. When this expires, and you wish to continue to utilize the Clubhouse and other programs offered in Thorndale, you MUST switch to a paid membership. You will be prompted to choose to be a visitor or a member. Please see the difference in the infographic below. ALL Thorndale residents who are trial members will receive an email with instructions on how to proceed.*
The space is available for drop-in (see calendar). Members will be FREE, and nonmembers must pay a $3 drop-in fee each time they choose to attend the Youth Clubhouse.
If you wish to rent the space (e.g. for a birthday party), a fee of $50 for two hours applies.
If you have a program or social opportunity for this space (ie. guitar lessons, billiards club), please contact us at [email protected] to discuss.
