Focus on Youth

Focus on Youth summer program for children and youth.

The program is a partnership between the Ontario Ministry of Education, school boards and local not-for-profit community groups.

School boards collaborate with community organizations to deliver initiatives aimed at promoting engagement by offering youth employment/leadership opportunities, including by hiring youth to facilitate pro-social activities for younger students in their communities.

Through this program, school boards provide free use of school space for not-for-profit community-based organizations to deliver high quality summer programs to keep young people safe and active.

Focus on Youth programming generally runs from early July to mid-August.
