The Drop is an inclusive, welcoming, free, safe space for youth ages 12*-20 years old.
Our mission is to CELEBRATE and SUPPORT youth.
We value INCLUSIVITY & DIVERSITY. We RESPECT and HONOUR individuality. We WELCOME all youth. We offer a space FREE FROM DISCRIMINATION.
The Drop was initially established in the summer of 2021 as part of the Near North District School Board’s (NNDSB) wellness camps. That summer, the NNDSB contracted Sound Youth Counselling (SYC) to execute its program and provide drop-in counselling. The Drop supported a total of 154 youth that summer and when the NNDSB contract ended, SYC knew it had to keep The Drop open - and so it did.
The Drop is now an independent, not-for-profit organization, committed to maintaining a safe, inclusive, space for youth in the Parry Sound community.
*open to youth turning 12 years-old by the end of the calendar year.
Located at: 14 James Street, Parry Sound ON P2A 1T2, CA
