It’s a great way to meet new people and have fun organizing events. Represent the youth community City-wide, as part of the Markham Mayor’s Youth Council or join a dynamic area-specific council that addresses the needs of youth closer to home.

Youth Council members can earn volunteer hours for their involvement? It also helps set you apart in the workforce and when applying for scholarships and awards!
