The City of Richmond is asking all youth ages 13 to 24 years, their family members and those who work with youth to provide feedback on its Draft Youth Strategy – an important framework to support and meet the unique needs of Richmond youth over the next decade.
Beginning Tuesday, February 14 through Sunday, April 2, 2023, there are a number of ways people can comment on the strategy’s priorities and action plan. They include:
- Visiting Let's Talk Richmond to review the draft strategy and complete the survey. The deadline to submit the survey is Sunday, April 2 at 11:59pm.
- Connecting with the City’s roaming street teams that will be engaging with youth at various locations throughout Richmond. For dates, times and location, follow @cityofrichmondyouth on Instagram or visit Let's Talk Richmond.
- Attending a social night for youth and young adults ages 19 to 24 at a local Richmond venue. Attendees can participate in a discussion about the Draft Youth Strategy and with light refreshments served. For date, time and location follow on Instagram or visit Let's Talk Richmond.
The City is also engaging with a number of key, youth-serving organizations including Community Associations and Societies, Richmond School District No. 38, Vancouver Coastal Health, Foundry Richmond and non-profit groups to ensure input at this stage continues to be thorough.
Feedback collected through the engagement process will ensure the diverse perspectives and interests of youth and those supporting youth are represented in the final Youth Strategy before it is presented to Council later this year.
