Posted in : Community News on by : Pooja Parekh
Please join us on Monday, May 9, from 12 noon to 1:00 p.m. at the Mattamy Athletic Centre Alumni Lounge, 50 Carlton Street, for the official launch of the City’s new youth portal – YouthTO.
The website will provide one-stop access to information about services, health resources, employment, volunteer, recreation and cultural opportunities for youth (ages 13 to 29). Developed in consultation with youth and with content from Divisions and Findhelp/211 and funded by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services, YouthTO will help Torontonians discover existing youth services and programs in their communities.
Enjoy cake and refreshments. Try out the YouthTO portal and meet the project’s Youth Advisory Group. The launch event is open to the public and will take place at the Work Connections job fair, Toronto’s largest school-to-work job fair for high school students entering the workforce.
The launch of this site marks the delivery of one of the City’s actions (3c) from the Toronto Youth Equity Strategy: “The City of Toronto will work with youth to develop and maintain a Youth Portal on the City’s website to serve as a centralized resource for the City’s services, programs, and initiatives for youth.”
