Youth Drop-In Centre

The City of Mount Pearl is proud to provide our young residents space located in the Reid Community Centre and the Gloria Pearson Community Centre. These spaces include a place to hang out with friends, play some games, take advantage of time in our gymnasiums, and participate in a diverse array of programs offered by the Youth Services Team. 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.

Programs are designed for youth 13 – 18 years of age.

Enjoy hanging with friends and peers in a safe and fun environment. Have a game of pool or ping pong, challenge your friends to one of our many board/video games, or just come in to hang out and take advantage of our free Wi-Fi and friendly staff.
