Ajax Site (Formerly The Youth Centre)
The Youth Centre provides free services to youth, ages 13 - 29 in Ajax and Pickering. They have a team of different professionals, like doctors, counsellors and youth outreach workers who offer health and wellness programs in a non-judgmental environment. You can access doctors and nurses who work with teens specifically, through the walk-in clinic, or by making an appointment
If you think you might like to try counselling, you can call and speak to a receptionist, who will ask you a few questions (like your name and what you’d like to get help with), and give you an appointment to have a phone conversation with one of the counsellors to get you started.
If you’re not sure about counselling, but would like to connect with someone who can help with school or housing issues, finding a job, or helping you to connect with other services, you can get in touch with a Youth Outreach Worker (YOW), by calling The Youth Centre, or texting a YOW directly at 905-903-3512 or 905-903-3612.
