The greatest thing we can do as a city is give our children the support they need to succeed in the classroom, get jobs, and build successful and enjoyable lives. I spent four years as the Councillor assigned to the Mayor’s Youth Task Force and had the pleasure of getting to know some exceptionally talented young leaders in our city.
- Youth Expo
- Markham’s Got Talent Show
- Youth Volunteer Fair
I believe that in co-operation with other levels of government we should invest in programs that will show significant return on investment for our youth and keep our most vulnerable children safe such as:
- Youth Summer Company Program
- City of Markham Business Plan competition
- Ontario Starter Company Program
