  • Apr. 16, 2012 12:00 p.m.

A new youth drop-in centre is opening in Fort St. James.

The Nak’azdli Alternate Justice Centre will be offering a drop in for what they call “aging youth” ages 18 and over.

It will be called the Just Us drop-in and will be opening May 17.

The spot will be open Thursdays and Fridays from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from noon until 10 p.m..

While everyone will be welcome, there will be a “no tolerance” policy for anyone under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Free foosball, pool, card and board games will be available, and the space will be open for use for other community organizations to host different types of events or just to interact with community members on another level.

A calendar of events will be coming soon, so watch for it, and volunteers are needed for supervision of the centre.

Call the Nak’azdli Alternate Justice Centre at 996-0003 for more information.
