Welcome to the Switch Yard

Bancroft Youth Unlimited

Help Us Stay ON TRACK!

Would you consider financially supporting The Switch Yard? We are excited to announce that we are once again hosting our Annual BBQ & Auction Fundraiser! It will take place on Friday, June 7th @ 5:30pm at The Switch Yard.
The barbecue will be the culminating event for our 2024 online fundraising campaign called ‘On Track’. The campaign launch date is May 29th, and it will wrap up 10 days later with the BBQ Dinner!  We have a financial fundraising goal of $20,000 for this campaign, and this is your opportunity to partner with us as we continue moving full steam ahead with changing the lives of our local youth.


New Decade. New Look. Same Great Switch Yard!

To celebrate 30 years of serving youth in Bancroft, the Switch Yard has a new look! In order to stay with the railway theme, the new icon is inspired by a railroad switch stand. This fun new logo will not replace the Bancroft Youth Unlimited logo, but rather will compliment it even better than the former ‘Switch Yard tracks’ logo did. New Decade. New Look. Same Great Switch Yard.

“The Switch Yard Youth Centre is a place youth in Bancroft can come, feel loved, safe and know that the volunteers care and are genuine in asking about our weeks and how we are doing.”
