Founded in 1991, the J2K satellite location is a home away from home: a non-judgmental and welcoming drop-in centre that caters to Montréal youth between the ages of 12 and 17 years old. Youth can be themselves: chill, play sports, cook, play video games, watch movies, or  sing and rap in our studio – all free of charge, all year long. It’s the spot to be!

J2K organizes regular workshops on a variety of topics, including shirt-making, intellectual property rights, cooking, sex ed. 

Music Programming

In 2013, J2K opened a music program, full of instruments and software. On a drop-in basis, teens can use musical instruments for practice and jam sessions. The free music studio is on a by-appointment basis, with the goals of: teaching youth how to use music software (mixing, mastering), and recording their music, poetry, and other personal projects. Drop-into J2K to find out how to make an appointment.  

In conjunction with the music studio programming, J2K regularly hosts concerts and talent showcases for Montreal youth and J2K participants to perform. These include the annual events: Street Vibes and Do My Ladies Run This?

 

Sports Programming

Gym hours are: 

Monday, Wednesday, Friday: 4:00pm-6:00pm

Saturdays: 2:00-5:00pm
