The City of Brantford, in partnership with the Brantford Youth Council (BYC), will be hosting free activities to celebrate National Youth Week from May 1 to 7, 2022.
Activities include fun and engaging virtual and in-person activities for youth ages 12 to 17, with daily prizes and a grand prize draw for a $50.00 iTunes gift card for participating.
“We look forward to recognizing Brantford youth for their active participation and engagement in our community,” said Kim Rolson, Community Recreation Supervisor for the City of Brantford. “The City of Brantford, designated as a Youth Friendly Community, strives to connect youth with others by creating fun, inclusive safe spaces.”
Brantford youth are invited to Woodman Park Community Centre, located at 491 Grey Street, for a Sea Turtle Escape Paint Night on Tuesday, May 3 at 7:30 p.m. or to play a game of Star Wars Dodgeball on Wednesday, May 4 at 7 p.m. Pre-registration is required for both activities at brantford.ca/RecConnect.
