Focus on Youth Program Returning for Summer 2021
Plans are underway to bring Focus on Youth to our community for the 2021 summer.
Every summer since 2008, Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board has partnered with not-for-profit groups through the Focus on Youth program to support them in delivering summer programs that keep young people safe and active.
Programs and activities are focused on:
- literacy and numeracy
- sports and recreation
- culture and the arts
- leadership development and mentorship
- programs targeted at meeting the needs of specific populations
The application for Focus on Youth student employment will open on Monday, May 31, 2021. If selected to participate in the program, student employment will begin on Monday, July 12, 2021.
Additional details will be shared as we approach May 31. For now, you can visit our Focus on Youth webpage for more information.
NOTE: Due to COVID-19, Focus on Youth 2021 will take a different form from previous years. Many student placements will be done virtually to support various summer programming. There will be a heavy emphasis on health and safety training, as well as privacy training.
