The Door Youth Centre is Highlands Youth for Christ’s name for its youth drop-in centres. The purpose of The Door is to provide alternatives of hope to youth and their families through caring relationships and developmental opportunities for the whole person (physical, social, mental and spiritual).
The Door Youth Centres offer a safe, supervised place for teens to hang out and visit, play pool, video games or other activities, or just talk. Along with drop-in, youth who attend The Door engage in many social events as well as weekly programs based on their needs and interests.
Staff and volunteers show these teens the love of Christ by accepting them when most other people just ignore them. Our centres interact with well over 2,000 teens each year, with up to 70 teens visiting each night.
