Y2K A Youth Friendly Kingston

Join the 'Youth Voice' a team of youth and adults that meets twice a month to help implement the strategy. They plan fun activities, make presentations, do recruitment and give advice to decision-makers on youth issues. Not only are Y2K activities fun, rewarding and offer great leadership opportunities, but attendance for those in high school, can count toward required volunteer hours. You'll make great friends and allies who are equally dedicated to making Kingston a more youth-friendly place.
