About The Mississippi Mills Youth Centre
The Mississippi Mills Youth Centre (MMYC) is a fun and inclusive community space for youth aged 10-18.
Our Mission | To support youth in the discovery of themselves and their community.
MMYC first opened our doors at 134 Main Street East, Almonte, Ontario in December 2016. Since then, we have worked hard to create a youth centre that provides for the diverse needs and interests of our local youth. With the help of our community partners, volunteers, and donors, we are able to host a wide variety of programs, activities, and events for free or low-cost.
Our Vision – Confident, Contributing, Content Youth
Our Values – Respect, inclusion, integrity, safety, responsibility, pride, fairness, fun and connections.
*See our Programs page for more info.
Our office is open to the public from 10:00am-7:30pm Monday-Friday
