YMCA Acacia Ridge
Youth Centre

YMCA Acacia Ridge Youth Centre (The Ridge Community Hub) was developed by the YMCA in 2018 as a shared education and community hub for and with the Acacia Ridge community.

Our Centre offers a range of programs and services to support the local community and provide a safe space for young people to create, collaborate and connect.

Everyone is welcome at the Ridge ❤

Market Day at the Ridge

Held on a third Saturday of the month, the Ridge Market Day brings passionate micro-businesses to our Acacia Ridge neighborhood. Join us for small goods, nicely-stitched garments, handmade stalls, fresh groceries, flavourful coffee and enjoy a beautiful Saturday out.

Programs & Events

The Ridge Youth Centre holds regular programs and events at our centre based on community interest and need. We are dedicated to creating environments for young people to be heard and safe spaces for them to belong, because we know what's required for them to thrive.

Our purpose-built facilities help us faciliate many young-people-leds programs and initiatives, such as The Grip Student Leadership Conference, Community Movie Night, Amplify Traineeship Program, etc.

Community Support

We believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. That’s why, at the Y, strengthening community is our cause. Every day, we work side by side with our neighbors in our community to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
