Youth Empowerment Program

Bringing people and resources together for 45 years.

The Youth Empowerment Program is an important Flamborough Connects initiative. Youth led and agency supported, this program is focused on creating a multi-dimensional hub for Flamborough youth – where they can engage with each other, build networks and share interests.

Activities are chosen by local youth and led by a core team of young people (the Leadership Team) and Flamborough Connect’s Youth Coordinator.  Activities include:

  • Youth Employment Fair
  • Youth Volunteer Fair
  • Opportunities to explore topics and activities chosen by youth: Recreation, Social Inclusion, Physical and Mental Wellbeing, Fun and Games
  • Opportunities to learn and implement leadership skills – and coach younger participants

Youth events are at multiple in-person locations throughout Flamborough and online.

The Leadership Team and all participants receive volunteer hours and have a ton of fun!

To register as a participant OR as a Leadership Team member, call 905-689-7880 or email
