Youth Centre

Mossbank Community Youth Builders (MCYB)

The Mossbank Community Youth Builders has grown out of the vison of a few young people (see the story below) and has recently taken another step forward. Its second location, the former CIBC building, experienced some serious water damage a few years ago. The Rosette Theatre and the youth centre were forced to an inactive state, but with the vison of people who are interested in seeing this valuable part of the Mossbank community continue, a new approach was undertaken.

With the planning and development of the Furrows and Faith Retirement Co-operative well under way the (MCYB) board and advisors approached the Mossbank Legion Branch 11 for the use of their building. After turning over the former Youth Centre (CIBC building) to the Furrows and Faith project, they entered into a long term agreement with the Town of Mossbank and the local legion members and the MCYB had a new home!

The hall continues to be available for rent, but the Rosette Theatre has also been revived. The Legion Hall - or should we say the MCYB Drop In Centre, is now alive on various nights throughout the month, either for youth looking for something to do or the showing of movies. The rates are very reasonable and the pop corn is great!

Watch Posters for the next movie presentation.

Thanks to everyone for your initiative to bring this worthwhile project back to our community!

Youth Centre History

The youth centre began as an idea from a group of youth attending a Badlands Recreation conference in October, 2001. The Town of Mossbank donated the use of a vacant house and April 13, 2002 we opened for business. We have received some of our funding through Community Initiatives, Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation and Badlands Recreation Association. Local support comes from the Town of Mossbank, RM's 102 and 103, Mossbank Recreation Board, many of our community groups and individuals. We have received money, facility use, supplies, volunteer hours, equipment, and furniture for the youth centre. Some of our memorable fundraisers include wakeathons, pancake breakfasts, Easter baskets, yard services, and lots more.

The youth centre has helped sponsor many new projects in the community including the monthly Community Calendar, the Mossbank Tae Kwon do Club, and the Mossbank Youth Leadership project (now the Rosette Theatre and the Mossbank Youth Community Builders).

We have held several sport clinics including fencing, cycling, tennis, soccer, boxing, synchronize swimming, laser tag, wrestling, and lacrosse. We’ve had lizard displays, camp-outs at the library, sleep-overs, buddy nights, dunk tanks, bouncy inflatable tents, sponsored community business challenges, purchased a new net each year for the beach volleyball court, and helped out with the Library’s Summer Reading Program.

The Youth program has been an incredible success with approximately 600 youth attending throughout each year and another 500-600 children, youth, and adults attending our summer events—over 5 years that’s over 5500 people!!
