Cabbagetown Youth Centre

Up the road, the Cabbagetown Youth Centre (CYC) and Boxing Club was founded in 1972 at 2 Lancaster Avenue. The CYC was converted into a community centre to provide youth with positive alternatives through sport and recreation while encouraging ongoing education. CYC expanded over the years to provide a similar range of recreational, social, and skill development programs.

BGCTK has reopened the building in 2022, after CYC faced financial challenges for funding of programs and services. The merger was a natural fit, with both organizations operating under similar missions, providing similar services, and serving adjacent communities. In a Memorandum of Understanding that preceded the merger it was agreed that BGC Toronto Kiwanis would continue to provide the programming and level of service to CYC participants at 2 Lancaster subject to provision of funds. But it’s not enough. We need your support to build our impact. And with your help, we know we can do more. our new opportunity BGC Toronto Kiwanis is grateful to the agencies and partners that provide ongoing financial support to sustain the Club’s core programs.
