Stratford Youth Centre, 57 Bunbury Road (Cotton Park)

The Youth Centre project began in March of 1999. The project began operating out of the Town of Stratford, and was initially funded through the National Strategy on Crime Prevention and Community Safety. The key focus of the project was to look for ways to begin to provide new social and recreational opportunities for youth in Stratford, and have youth become more involved in the overall activities of the Town.

The Stratford Youth Centre has grown over the years. Business and community organization participation and support has increased as well as the awareness level of what the StratfordYouth Centre stands for in our community. Aside from regular fund-raising activities, the StratfordYouth Centre helps other committees and community functions including:

  • Introducing the Annual Stratford Youth Volunteer Awards
  • Providing volunteers at various Town of Stratford events.
  • Volunteering for many other special events, activities and fund raisers for recognized not-for-profit groups. We have raised thousands of dollars to make our community a better place for everyone.
  • Establishing the Youth Drop In Centre at the Cotton Park for youth in grades 5 and up (ages 10+).

The membership requirement is 10 hours of volunteer service every 6 months. All volunteer hours are recorded to assist youth graduating, job seeking, and applying for Scholarships and/or Bursaries.
