Why Not Youth Centre
368 Colborne Street
Brantford, ON

Each month, we have taken turns and coordinated a dinner for between 40 and 80 at-risk youth in our community.  This is a big accomplishment.  Our dinners have ranged from barbeques and taco salads in a bag to more traditional meals like ham and roast beef. Thanks to all that participated during the 2018-2019 Rotary year.

As reminder, this happens the fourth Monday of every month.  Dinner is served at 6 until 6:30 or so.  Then a quick clean up and we are usually done before 7.  Set-up time varies depending on the amount of work needed to be done on site ... but typically 5:30 - 5:45.

For the month of December, we are looking for a coordinator from the Sunrise Club and then 4 servers (both clubs).  January should be a coordinator from Friday Club and February Sunrise Club, etc...

Budget:  There is a $200 budget each month ($100 per club) - this includes all food, water bottles, fruit, dessert, etc... Paper plates, napkins and cutlery are already at the centre.

Coordinator:  We rotate between the clubs each month.  The coordinator is responsible to decide on the meal, do the groceries/cook (or arrange for food) and communicate with the servers about what time to arrive.

Servers:  Show up at the given time, help set up the food or finish prepping it, pick a 'station' for servicing food and help with clean-up.

The youth at the centre will set up all the tables.
