The brand new 13,000 square foot facility will host a number of activities from arts and music programs to drop-in basketball. Youth are also encouraged to use the centre to complete homework in their safe studies space or just drop in and use the gymnasium to stay active. The staff at Shak’s World is also made up of many Social Workers and Child Youth Workers who can help struggling youth deal with issues they might be having.
