We are currently accepting nominations for the 2017 Milton Youth Awards. The Milton Youth Advisory Committee will host the awards on May 3 which will recognize youth in 8 categories including those that celebrate leadership, personal triumph, contribution and activism.

Nominations are now Closed!

Our Mission

MYAC's mission is to empower youth to participate and have a voice in the Milton community, thereby fostering a positive image for all young people.

MYAC is supported by the Town of Milton, Halton Region Health Department, Halton Region Police Services and Milton Hub. MYAC is a group of volunteers, aged 13 to 18 years, from schools all over Milton. These volunteers are interested in facing and resolving the issues of the youth of Milton. MYAC members are dedicated to giving a voice to the youth of Milton, and meeting once a month to work together to accomplish this goal.

Our Purpose

  • Act as an advisory body to Milton Council, the Community Services Advisory Committee, and the Milton community on matters which affect youth
  • Identify and bring forward issues which affect Milton youth (This may include the presentation of recommendations for action.)
  • Act as a positive advocate for youth through the Town Councillor representative
  • Address, foster discussions or make recommendations on youth issues to all levels of government
  • Actively participate in community events and activities
  • Encourage committee members to become familiar with the working of local government through education, involvement and participation.

Get Involved!

All Milton youth, 13 to 18 years of age, are welcome to join.

Youth Friendly Community

Youth Friendly Community logo (silver designation)The Town of Milton has been recognized by Play Works (the Ontario Partnership for Active and Engaged Youth) as a Youth Friendly Community.

The Youth Friendly Community Recognition Program works to acknowledge the great work that some communities are doing in ensuring their youth (ages 13 - 19) have continuous access to a diversity of 'play' - play being anything a young person does in his/her free time which could include: sport, recreation, drama, dance, music, the arts, volunteerism, leadership development, service leadership and/or civic engagement.

The Town of Milton is proud to provide services to and support youth in a way that helps make them feel engaged, valued and an integral part of community life.
