What is the YDC?
The YDC is a drop-in after school program for teens run by BP Church. It’s a place where students and their friends can come and hangout after school. There’s free food, video games, adult mentors, and more. Our after school program is located in North Calgary, just off Centre Street. Our building is a short walk from most major bus lines such as the 3, 46, 88, 301, and more.
We open our doors at 3:00PM every Monday through Thursday and close our doors at 5:30PM. During these times, students are free to come and go, but we ask that rides are arranged to pick up student no later than 5:30PM.
We welcome any student in grade 6 to 12 to the YDC. We don't care what you look like or what you believe in, if you fall into the category of "Grade 6 - 12", come on in! If you are a parent of a teen, and would like to see our centre, you're more than welcome to come by during YDC hours, but in order to continue operating in a safe environment, we do not allow regular visits/prolonged visits from adults who have not passed a police check through our organization. If you have more questions about this, feel free to shoot Mandi an email!
We meet at “BP Church – Student Centre”, which is a blue building located in North-Central Calgary. We operate in a space that we've intentionally designed with students in mind. Video games, pool tables, study tables, great music, and a bright, exciting environment are what you can expect from us.
