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.
All Milton youth, 13 to 18 years of age, are welcome to join.
Interested in obtaining high school volunteer hours? At the end of the year you will be provided with a letter indicating how many hours you volunteered with MYAC.

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.
