Youth Speaks: August

I heard about The Grove Wellington Guelph from a friend who also likes to visit The Grove Wellington Guelph - Palmerston Site. They said it was a cool place to hang out, so I decided to come and check it out for myself. I don't live very close to the site, but I still enjoy coming here every day. Stopping by The Grove gives me something fun to do during the summer break. I like having somewhere to go to fill my time and enjoy myself during the summer, before school starts again!

There are a lot of activities for youth to participate in. I like that I can come by The Grove to play video games like Call of Duty, Fortnite, and Minecraft. I like to jam on the guitar as well. The Grove has a variety of instruments we're welcome to use, but sometimes I'll bring my guitar from home to give someone else a chance to play. It’s nice to have the opportunity to meet new people and connect over music and games. It’s a nice way to spend my time during the summer break.

I feel a great connection with all the staff at The Grove as well. Everyone is really friendly, and they treat us with respect. They love to chat with us, care about our well-being, and always ask lots of questions to ensure we are happy with The Grove and their work. It's nice that the staff also genuinely tries to engage with us, like playing board games or building a puzzle. They make it feel like The Grove is not just a place to talk about our personal experiences but to allow us to build new relationships and get to know others with similar interests.
