Thursday, Mar. 17, 2016 (Halifax, NS) – The Parks and Recreation department is reaching out to youth aged 13 to 24 years old to help create a Youth Plan for the Halifax Regional Municipality.
The overall objective of the Youth Plan is to ensure that municipal programs and services are meeting the needs of our youth, and will provide the basis for service offerings over the next three to five years.
Young residents within the targeted age group are encouraged to participate in this process by completing a survey, which focuses on recreation & sport, art programming, and leadership and job readiness. The survey is live now at www.halifax.ca/youth and will close on May 7, 2016.
Survey participants will have the opportunity to win some great prizes, including the Grand Prize of one of two iPad Minis! The draw is open to residents of the Halifax Regional Municipality, 13 to 24 years old, who have completed the survey. Some restrictions apply.
Feedback from the survey will be reviewed and considered by Parks and Recreation’s Youth Team and staff over the coming months during the formulation of the Youth Plan. For more information on municipal youth programs and services, visit www.halifax.ca/youth.
