YCC – Youth Centres of Ogden is a charitable organization that provides free after school drop-in activity and mentorship to youth, in grades five to ten, in the vulnerable and underserved community of Ogden in Calgary’s south-east. We know that many of Calgary’s youth struggle in school, have lives of neglect and poverty and are otherwise unable to access after school activity. After school is the time during which the majority of crime that happens within this cohort occurs. YCC provides youth was incorporated in 2O18 and has successfully provided homework help, sports, music lessons, a place to read, meet friends, have a daily hot meal, between the hours of 3 and 6 daily. YCC is a place for kids to “be kids” and safe, in a community that is economically and socially challenged. This model was developed by its founder and Executive Director when she operated another similar centre in Calgary’s NE and we believe that it can be replicated in other communities of Calgary, in a cozy home, walking distance from school and home and across from a green space. During covid, with many facing job loss and food insecurity, YCC has pivoted to provide “grab and go” lunch and snack packs, made in a commercial kitchen, as well as grocery packs, sports equipment, books and pantry food. The food is distributed outdoors, at 5 pop-up sites, including the Ogden site. Kids and families pick up the food, they connect with each other outdoors daily.
