​PROCLAMATION: National Youth Week

May 1-7, 2021

WHEREAS:

recreation benefits individuals, families, neighbourhoods and communities; and 

WHEREAS:​

the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury provides high quality programs and leisure opportunities for residents to lead healthy, active lives through recreation and to make our community a great place to live, work and play; and

WHEREAS:

there is an increasing interest in intentional youth development through recreation in Canada that is founded on a substantial and growing body of research to support the role of recreation in the positive development of youth. Canadian youth are often unrecognized for the valuable contributions they make to communities and Canada’s social, economic and civic landscape. Meaningful youth engagement through recreation emphasizes access, equity and social justice and leads to positive youth development; and

WHEREAS:

National Youth Week reminds us all of the valuable contributions that recreation and parks can make to youth development and that youth can make to community development. National Youth Week is endorsed by the Canadian Parks and Recreation Association and the network of agencies and individuals committed to the positive development of youth.

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED:

that His Worship Mayor Rob Keffer and Members of Council proclaim May 1-7, 2021 as NATIONAL YOUTH WEEK in the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury.
