THE HUB PROGRAMS

THE COLLECTIVE

Join The Collective as youth gather ever Thursday evening from 7-9pm.
This group is geared towards youth ages 12-18 year olds from London area community and churches. A medium sized youth group, The Collective offers a relaxed and friendly atmosphere where youth can ask questions and learn more about what the power of Jesus’ love can do in their daily lives. Regular evening activities consist of large group games, worship time, prayer, messages from the Bible and small group discussions. The highlight of these evenings is the fellowship that youth can find while sharing their lives with peers.

You do not have to be a member of a church to participate in this program. All youth who are interested in discovering more about what it means to follow Jesus or who are exploring their own faith are welcome. The Collective is a chance for youth to engage in conversations about faith and Jesus in a safe environment surrounded by their peers. There is no cost for this program, but registration is required.

SUMMIT CAMPS

Summit Camps are geared for youth ages 12-15. Our camp programs require that campers possess a high level of interest and endurance level to be fully engaged in these weeks. We are offering a high caliber, high impact summer camp program designed for older youth who may have grown out of the usual camp format but still want to have a fun packed summer. Our camps focus on specific skills and interests, with each week having a different theme. Pick out the theme that suits you best and get ready for a week of fun, skill development, faith discussion, character building, and new friends. If your child is under 12, please check out Forest Cliff Camp @ www.forestcliff.ca/ for both day camps and overnight camps.

If you are a youth who is older than 15, we strongly recommend that you apply as a volunteer for the potential of being involved with the camps as a Counselor in Training (CIT) or in the Summer Support Team.

OUTBOUND

OUTBOUND excursions take youth out of the city limits and introduces them to a variety of interactive activities in the great outdoors. Through various nature-based experiences, youth are introduced to the endless masterpieces our Creator God has made and blessed us with and in this environment, youth learn life skills like leadership, communication and team work. What a powerful way to learn about yourself and who you are being called to be when you have been removed from the pressures and noise of the technology saturated world created by humans.

COMPASS

COMPASS BASKETBALL

Compass is a community basketball program that started in Pond Mills area in the summer of 2013. It started as pick-up ball with over 30 local high school boys, some with experience and many without. The goal was always to use basketball to build relationships, create mentoring opportunities, provide a safe environment where players feel loved and encouraged, and to allow them to find their God-given purpose and identity.

The goal has never changed.

STREETLIGHT

STREETLIGHT

Streetlight is a consistent and compassionate resource to meet the physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs of at-risk youth in London.

Streetlight Outreach
Streetlight’s Mobile Youth Center operates out of a custom-made RV in downtown London, staffed by a team of dedicated outreach workers, placement students, and community volunteers. Our goal is to provide a safe and consistent space for at-risk youth (15-25 years) to come to receive food, basic needs, support, advocacy and a sense of community.
Mobile Youth Center is open year-round and happens Tuesday and Thursday Nights 7:00-9:00pm at 568 Richmond Street (First Baptist Church, between Victoria Park and Smoke’s Poutine)

Streetlight Community Supports

E-RECYCLE

E-recycle provides free professional pickup and removal of unwanted electronics in the London and surrounding area, creating employment hours, mentorship, and skills development opportunities for at-risk youth. Youth involved in E-recycle youth recognize their employment potential and continue on the path to becoming positive and experienced contributors to the local workforce and surrounding community.

Since 2015, Streetlight E-Recycle has collected and processed over 900 tons of E-waste from the community and created over 3000 paid/volunteer/community service/probation hours for youth in need.

35 youth have participated in the program so far and each has demonstrated increased capacity in a professional work environments, and more confidence in social and employment situations.

CAFé

Café Connect

Café Connect is an eclectic space where everyone feels like they’ve come home, a meeting place and safe space for community and all youth.

We’ve created a space to escape the pressures of life. Café Connect is a wonderful place for youth to enjoy a beverage and a light refreshment, or for the community to gather. Stay as long as you want. Get lost in a book or a conversation. Catch up on your friends through Facebook, send out some resumes or play a board game. It’s your time and your space, so use it however you like.

We are open Monday to Friday, 7:00am-2pm for all ages and during the school year we are open Monday to Thursday 4pm-9pm for youth and young adults ages 12-24.

Thanks to everyone who is helping to create this great
community space for youth.
