What Dufferin Should Know about Our Youth and the Future they Seek?
The Dufferin Community Foundation is pleased to have been a partner with the RBC Foundation in bringing the RBC Future Launch Community Challenge to Dufferin County. In addition to funding two projects for youth leaders within Dufferin County, a key component was conducting consultations with young people in our community, to seek their opinions on life in Dufferin and how to make the quality of life here even better. The findings from those consultations are contained in the report Vital Conversations with Youth – What Dufferin Should Know about Our Youth and the Future they Seek.
We are excited then to share with you, our community leaders, a copy of that report. Please read it – I am confident you will find it enlightening and a valuable resource to guide discussions about future programs that involve and engage youth in Dufferin. Please share it widely – this document is meant for the community, to be used by the community, and for the community. Community Foundations exist to build and manage permanently invested funds; the income produced can then be distributed to support our LOCAL charities and other qualified organizations to support those activities that enrich our community. We are pleased to be recognized and entrusted by organizations like RBC and the Government of Canada to deliver their programs locally, based on our expertise and knowledge of our local communities.
