HamOntYouth Steering Committee

The HamOntYouth Steering Committee is designed to be easily accessible to youth who live, work or play in Hamilton. All youth aged 14-29 are welcome to participate and there are no minimum attendance requirements to maintain membership. The meetings are a safe space for youth to share their opinion, to learn and have fun. Youth must complete a HamOntYouth orientation session before attending their first meeting.

The HamOntYouth Steering Committee allows City staff & youth to collaborate on:

  • Effective techniques and locations to connect, consult and collaborate.
  • Making recommendations on youth initiatives.
  • Creating a youth-friendly city and community initiatives.
  • Identifying projects that would make Hamilton a more youth-friendly city.
