Town of Whitby Council has approved a Youth Strategy that will guide the Recreation and Leisure Services for the Whitby community from 2019 to 2023. The Town’s new Youth Strategy has been developed based on extensive engagement with local youth, the Whitby Youth Council and other community stakeholders.
The Town of Whitby is a Platinum Level Youth Friendly Community and is committed to integrating local youth into its activities and decision-making. A new Youth Strategy will help ensure the Town continues to address the needs of youth in the community over the next five years (2019 to 2023.) The strategy sets out the Town’s goals, desired outcomes and actions related to the delivery of youth leisure and recreation services.
The development and adoption of this Youth Strategy reinforces Council's commitment to youth and ensures that youth and the staff working with them have direction and focus moving forward.
The adoption and implementation of the 2019 to 2023 Recreation and Leisure Services Youth Strategy will ensure that Whitby continues to consider the needs of youth and be a model community for youth and their families to live, work and play.
