Drop-in nights act as a safe, dynamic and empowering place to be. Youth who attend are welcomed into a non-judgmental, inclusive environment where they can hang out have fun, develop social skills and learn new things. Youth, volunteers and staff take part in a group meeting at 7:30pm where we they are informed of different planned activities throughout the night (and are subjected to some sort of ridiculous game where there are always prizes!). During the evening youth have a chance to try out a creative craft, take part in a planned gym game, have a snack or just hang out with friends and mentors. Other optional activities that are always available throughout the night include ping pong, video games, air hockey, fenced off skateboarding area, computer room, board games, rock climbing and much more.

Monday nights are for youth aged 11-14 and man, are they ever a good night to be here. Mondays at The MAT are jam-packed with enthusiastic energy and a love for organized activities. Whether it's Humans vs. Zombies, Glow-in-the-Dark Dodgeball, Ultimate Frisbee, karaoke or some game we just invented on the spot- our Monday night youth are down to try anything which makes for a night that always just seems to go by too fast. Oh, and did I mention that our Monday night crew's expertise in making slime? Specifically, glittery slime. They are not messing around with this stuff.
