Virtual Drop-In Center

We hope you and your family are well during this time of concern with the COVID-19 virus.  We here at Glencoe Youth Services are taking steps to best support our youth and provide a safe environment for everyone. 


Our building is closed to promote social distancing, however Glencoe Youth Services has created a virtual drop center for youth and adolescents in the New Trier Township


We are grateful to be part of this community and want to remind everyone that while social distancing is recommended – we encourage you to avoid emotional isolation.


About our Drop-In Center

Virtual Drop-In Schedule


Virtual drop-in hours give you the chance to virtually hangout at the GYS. Taking part in the virtual drop-in center is free and voluntary. This is a safe space for our participants to learn and connect with friends and our community. Our drop-in center provides access to youth within the New Trier Township and surrounding neighborhoods. During the week, our staff will be available on Zoom, GYS' preferred videoconferencing program from 3:00pm to 6:00pm. You may join in on at any time on any device when you download Zoom! In order to receive the meeting invitation for our virtual hangout session, please email requesting the meeting link. Then you simply follow the directions to join in on the fun!
