Youth Drop-In Centre

The City of Mount Pearl is proud to provide their young residents drop-in space located in the Reid Community Centre and the Gloria Pearson Community Centre.

Like all City of Mount Pearl facilities, we celebrate diversity and inclusion at these centres and encourage young people to take advantage of this free space offered to them.
