"Acceptance...Collaboration...Empowerment - Investing in the Potential of Our Youth"
Did you know...
Burlington was awarded a Youth Friendly Community Recognition Award through Playworks - The Ontario Partnership for Active Youth! A youth friendly community is one that actively supports and provides opportunities for the growth and development through play for youth aged 13 to 19 years of age. Play can include but is not limited to- recreation, sport, leisure, arts, drama, civic engagement, youth activism, volunteerism, social clubs and youth leadership.
A Business Strategy for Youth Recreation Services has been completed. The top two priorities emerging from this strategy are pursuing a leadership role in the coordination of recreation services in Burlington and addressing the service gaps for youth-at-risk. Meaningful youth engagement, inclusivity and youth awareness will be some of the key themes as the strategy is implemented.
