WHO WE ARE
The LaSalle Hangout for Youth (The Hangout) is a Not-For-Profit organization focused on providing a safe, tolerant and supportive facility for youth in LaSalle, Ontario. The Hangout works to foster a space for the youth to engage in constructive and safe activities as opposed to more destructive behaviour apparent when kids are left to their own devices. We provide support for all youth between the ages of 12 to 18 at no cost to the youth or their families, relying solely on the generous contributions of our sponsors.
Frequently asked questions
The Hangout was established after recognizing a general absence of available after-school programs as well as a concerning amount of young people on the streets. The need became increasingly apparent after consulting with local businesses and the LaSalle Police Service.
As a non-profit organization, we rely heavily on our gracious volunteers, donations, fundraising events, local businesses, and community supporters to keep our doors open. If interested in supporting The Hangout, send us a message!
Currently, the youth centre extends its services to any youth within the range of 11 to 18 years old.
Our needs vary depending on the time of year; however, we’re in constant need of: juice boxes/concentrate, fruit, vegetables, bread, cheese slices, water bottles, chicken fingers, and cleaning supplies. To find out what our current demand is, feel free to message our Facebook page or give us a call at (519) 970-9629.
