Youth Development Committee Focus:

This key action committee is focusing on the lives of Manchester’s youth from 9 - 20 years old. Family support, educational and developmental services, and engagement opportunities should, at a minimum, be reviewed. The committee will start with the question: "What single recommendation will have the greatest impact on ensuring that the youth of Manchester are developing fully and are fully engaged?"

Committee Recommendation: Manchester, where all youth are valued as resources and empowered to develop
the character, life skills and positive connections needed to thrive.
