About the Youth Strategy Report
Built through extensive engagement and collaboration with youth, City staff, parents and agency partners, the City of Hamilton’s Youth Strategy maps out a plan for how the City will engage youth aged 14-29 and address the issues they face in Hamilton.
Through this engagement process, five priority themes were identified to ensure youth voices will be integrated into City building. The strategy also makes certain that youth continue to be a part of the process moving forward, through the development of the HamOntYouth Steering Committee.
This 5-year strategy will inform, guide and build awareness about our youth while encompassing their voice as part of the process.
Youth voices, engagement and leadership are central pillars of a strong community and this strategic approach will ensure that youth are included in a meaningful way.
As a progressive city we have a responsibility to create a positive, and supportive community, which offers opportunities for youth to develop in a healthy way.
