Youth Engagement

Strategic Priority 3 is to develop a youth-focused community that improves well-being, inclusivity, resiliency, pride and success of all youth. Data from our local School Boards shows that significant numbers of youth in school deal with anxiety, bullying, and emotional regulation. 

A recent survey provided by the Youth Wellness Hub confirmed that youth are wanting more services in mental health, anti-racism education, and more opportunities for recreation (YWH, 2021). The goal of the CSWBP plan is to promote youth engagement and empowerment, so that youth are able to actively engage and positively influence their peers, school and community.

Targeted Outcomes:

  • Increase in youth feeling safe, connected, and supported in the community.
  • Increase in youth presence, engagement, and participation in community-wide decisions impacting youth.
  • Increase in opportunities for youth to reconnect with education and improve education outcomes.
  • Increase the positive profile of youth in Timmins.
