Bill Graham Youth Centre

A modern youth centre young people can call their own.

Dixon Hall Youth Centre
New Youth Centre at 51 Wyatt Avenue

We are thrilled to announce that construction on our new youth centre is complete. The doors at 51 Wyatt Ave. are now open to our clients, and both staff and youngsters alike are finding their way around and settling into the new space.

There’s still some work to be done – we’re adding finishing touches to the building, and working to fill the space with colour, life, and elements that recognize the generous community of donors who helped make this building possible.

We will have an event in May to help celebrate this milestone, and, in particular, to recognize the wonderful donors whose gift led the way for a successful capital campaign. Thanks to Bill and Cathy Graham, in particular, for their generous, ground-breaking gift.

There are so many to thank for their help in this process. A tremendous thank you is owed to our construction partner, Cambria Design Build, for their support and generosity. And of course to all of our public and private funders, including the federal and provincial Ministries of Infrastructure, as well as the City of Toronto and Toronto Community Housing Corporation, who donated the land for this important building.

The new centre is adjacent to the Regent Park Athletic Grounds and, thanks to input from our young clients, is a brightly-coloured addition to the community. The building is 4 storeys tall, and features 10,000 square feet of program space. There is an expanded kitchen, several multipurpose rooms, a recording studio, and a jam room.

We look forward to sharing a program schedule soon (just as soon as the dust settles), and in the meantime, encourage you to reach out to our relevant staff members in the Children and Youth Department or the Music School if you have questions about the space and its programs.
