Youth Engagement and Retention
#6 Youth Engagement and Retention
It was very prominent during the community engagement sessions that we focus our efforts on engaging our youth more and incorporating their thoughts and ideas into the future planning of Flin Flon.
We engaged approximately 45+ youth in the community and they had lots of innovative ideas and creative ways to deliver services and ensure a sustainable future for Flin Flon. It was also very clear during the community engagement sessions that there is ample opportunity to develop more youth programming and for the development of a place for the youth to gather.
The City of Flin Flon has identified the following key action items that they feel are imperative for youth engagement and retention.
Key Action Items
1. Enhance and deliver a sustainable youth program and facilities.
2. Incorporation of youth engagement with municipal boards and committees.
3. Increased focus and future planning for youth retention.
4. Creation of more innovative recreational activities for youth to be more engaged
