Child & Youth Programs

Child & Youth Programs


At the heart of the Eva Rothwell Centre, has always been our free Child & Youth programming. Today, we continue to provide a wide range of innovative educational and developmental activities so children and youth are given opportunities to engage and succeed through physical, social, creative and educational programming. 

Known as a ‘second home’ for many of our members, we ensure there are no barriers to access.

 Monday-Friday from 3:00pm – 6:00pm (after school snack being provided daily) 

Breakfast Program

Students who are given nutritious breakfasts daily make significant improvements in learning, school attendance, behaviour and self-esteem.

In partnership with Tastebuds Hamilton, the Eva Rothwell Centre’s “Best Start” breakfast program ensures that children in need have access to a healthy breakfast in a safe, supervised environment – to help each child start their day ready to learn. 

 Monday to Friday from 7:00am to 8:30am

Larry Palkin Literacy Express

At the center of success, is education. In partnership with Hamilton Police Services, The Literacy Express provides children and youth a quiet location to interact with staff and Hamilton Police Service Crime Prevention volunteers to take the next steps towards learning. Reading programs, social media writing, and homework tutoring are offered.
