COUNCILLOR SANTOS & VICENTE STATEMENT:

For Youth & By Youth Strategy first of its kind in Ontario developed at City of Brampton

Since day one of the new term of Council, we have been committed to prioritizing the voice and needs of youth in our city. Every single week, we have intentionally discussed and mentioned the word “youth”. While our new Council understands the importance of and value in taking action and investing in our young people, it is still a tough nut to crack in terms of developing an appropriate strategy that speaks to youth in Brampton.

The original motion passed on December 4, 2018 requested staff to report back on the development of a Youth Council. After 3 months of feedback from various departments and committees, the development of a youth engagement strategy was given to City of Brampton youth interns Alexis Rutty-Ridley and Alexandra De Ciantis. Their impressive report was presented today at Council in addition to a number of other items such as establishing a Youth Hub and a Collaborative Learning Technology Centre in partnership with Peel District School Board.

The research and recommendations of the report are for youth and developed by youth. It is an impressive report which is the first of its kind in Ontario. Council endorsed the recommendations in the report. We are proud of the work of our youth interns.
