The City of Hamilton is working on finalizing its youth strategy. The youth strategy will help determine the top 5 priorities for youth age 14-29 and ways for youth to be more engaged in their communities.
They are asking for youth, community partners, and parents of youth to participate in and attend our Youth Strategy Focus Groups.
The Focus Groups will feature two rounds of breakout rooms. The topics of the breakout rooms will be “Services in Hamilton” and “What is it like being a youth in Hamilton”.
Focus groups dates and times are as followed:
Youth Focus Groups September 25 – 1 to 3 pm September 29 – 6 to 8 pm
Parent Focus Group October 4 – 6:30 to 8 pm
Partner Focus Group October 7 – 1 to 2:30 pm
They hope members from your organization will join us. Your perspectives are important to this process.
They are looking for support from our community partners to share the information about focus groups with youth and parents through your networks and social media channels. The more voices of youth and parents that participate, the stronger we can understand the priorities for our youth. They also encourage you to refer youth to participate through your day to day interactions in the community.
