Safe spaces where teens can be themselves
YMCA Academy Website
On Teen Night, youth can enjoy the YMCA however they want — for free! At all 9 of our Health & Fitness centres across the GTA, our gymnasiums, conditioning rooms, pools, dance studios and more are open for teens to get active, spend time together, and get involved in their communities.
At Teen Night, you can play sports, join a dance group, go for a swim, work out in the weight room, take a music or art class, or just hang out with your friends. Teen Night programs are run by and for youth just like you — and by getting involved, you can earn your high school volunteer hours!

"If I wasn’t at Teen Night, I would be sitting at home playing video games and being unhealthy."
– Newsha, age 14
"Because Teen Nights are youth lead and adult supported, it provides me with a voice and opportunity to help make decisions that influence me and the youth in my community."
– Nadine, age 17
Teen Night is totally free — you don't need a YMCA membership to participate. Just bring a piece of photo ID to get your complimentary Teen Night access card.
Developed in response to the needs of our growing and diverse communities, YMCA Teen Nights are addressing issues such as belonging, sedentary behaviour, obesity, and disengagement. They're designed to support youth who want to get active, build new connections, hone their leadership skills, and become engaged members of their communities. Each and every weekend, Teen Nights give between 9,000 and 12,000 youth access to safe spaces where they can build confidence and meet positive role models.
