Meetings

The Milton Youth Task Force is made up of 2 groups:  The Core Team and the Ambassador Team

The Core Team leads the Task Force Strategy and does the majority of the organization for all of the projects.  This is a team of 15 (maximum) youth who work closely together, receive leadership and skills training and are highly committed to the team.  This team meets for 2 hours every other week. 

The Ambassador Team meets once a month for 2 hours and is responsible for ensuring that the larger community is engaged in the Milton Youth Task Force activities, the voice of youth is represented around town and members are involved in all outreach and feedback projects. 

What we do

The purpose of MYTF is: 
  • To get more youth involved with their community
  • To give feedback from a youth perspective to Government and community organizations
  • To advocate for the needs of youth
  • To support youth community leaders
