Xperience Annex

Learning Annex header and logo

In Hamilton, there is a wide variety of high-quality education and employment services aimed at helping Hamilton’s youth achieve their full potential. With so many choices, this journey can sometimes feel like a maze.

By connecting and collaborating with education, health care and employment providers, the Xperience Annex supports youth ages 18-29 in achieving their goals.  Our youth navigator understands the challenges youth face and helps them prepare them for their future by creating pathways to community services and employment. The Xperience Annex is a partnership initiative between the City of Hamilton and community partners, with funding from the Local Poverty Reduction Fund.

Xperience Annex is open!
