Open weekdays from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., teens are welcome to drop in voluntarily to enjoy recreational and educational opportunities. We offer a safe space for young people to relax, grow, make friends, join a leadership board and more. Every year, hundreds of youth enjoy this nurturing, convenient, and fun environment. Our programs are always guided by trained professional staff who facilitate meaningful connections among all youth.
Glencoe Youth Services relies on the volunteer work from good people like you! Whether your talent is cooking, helping with homework, sewing, sports, photography, cartooning, drawing or helping young people or people with special needs discover and explore different cultures, we invite you to share your interests with our GYS community.

SNAP meets on Tuesday evenings from 6 to 9 PM in the Glencoe Youth Services (GYS) building. Every week starts with a warm, healthy dinner provided by generous donors (including religious organizations, non-profits, and individual families). At the beginning of every month, the group votes on programming for each Tuesday of the month.
Popular activities include: Bingo, Karaoke, Uno, and movies. Once a month, we have a special guest speaker come in and teach topics such as healthy eating, available community resources, and more! We also do community outings to movie theatres, restaurants, arcades and more!
