The youth of today, are the leaders of tomorrow. - Nelson Mandela

The Town of Minto is proud to be designated as a Gold Level Youth Friendly Community through the Playworks Partnership, actively supporting and providing opportunities for the growth and development of our Youth (ages 13 - 19) through play. 

What is a Youth Friendly Community?

A Youth Friendly Community encourages play for youth in their community. Play is any non-school activity that has elements of choice, leads to satisfaction, and encourages progressive learning and enjoyment. 

Activities can include - but are not limited to recreation, sport, leisure, arts, drama, dance, civic engagement, youth activism, volunteerism, social clubs and youth leadership.

The Economic Development and Recreation Departments recognize and appreciate the many community partners they work with to create opportunities for youth play in the community!
