Play Works is the Ontario Partnership for Active and Engaged Youth and has recognized the Town of Milton as a Gold Level Youth Friendly Community. This recognition program works to acknowledge great work in communities for youth aged 13 to 19 when it comes to play. The Milton community was successful in meeting 9 out of the 10 criteria required for this designation. 

Play can be anything youth participate in during their spare time, such as:

  • Sports
  • Recreation
  • Drama
  • Dance
  • Music
  • Art
  • Volunteering
  • Leadership development
  • Service leadership
  • Civic engagement

We are proud to provide support and services that help youth feel engaged, valued, and like an integral part of our community.
