The EMYS Youth Space is an Enhanced Youth Space,  a place where youth can come to create, connect, learn and inspire.

The model for the enhanced youth spaces was approved by City Council in 2014 and focuses on three components: dedicated space for youth, consistent staff and programming tailored to youth interests.

Examples of some of the programming offered at the Enhanced Youth Spaces includes: Barbering, Learn to DJ, DIY Nail Art, Dominoes Club and Financial Literacy.
