What do we offer

TECHNOLOGY NIGHTS - Every Tuesday we open the One Stop centre up to computer use, resume building, and homework support. We also do a monthly trip to the movie theatre to watch a movie of youths choice. We have Netflix available weekly, where we pop a few bags of popcorn and watch some of the latest movies or TV shows!

RECREATION NIGHTS - Staying active and healthy is very important. Here at One Stop,, every Wednesday we try to preach the importance of being active, while engaging in fun activities. Although we offer youth the options to workout at the gym if they please, we also offer the options of swimming, skating, bowling, basketball, soccer, beach volleyball, frisbee golf, pool, ping pong, hiking, and nature walks. We try to make the most of the beautiful weather and scenery we have here in Nanaimo.

ART NIGHTS - Art nights provide a vehicle for self expression and promotes creativity. We provide learning and opportunity for mastery in the visual and performing arts. Painting, sculpting, drawing, coloring, jewelry making, photography, music and poetry are available every Thursday.

CLOTHING CLOSET - Are you looking to dress for success? Want to nail that perfect interview outfit? Looking to get some new summer outfits? Come check out our clothing closet during the One Stop Youth Centre hours or see one of our Employment Resource Centre Advisors during office hours.
