The Town of Ajax believes that youth are contributing members of society NOW, not only future citizens or leaders of tomorrow.  We are committed to offering a diverse range of programs, facilities and events that meet the developmental needs of youth...

  • mastery and achievement
  • physical activity
  • self-definition
  • creative expressions
  • positive interactions with peers and adults
  • structure and clear limits
  • meaningful participation

In 2008 the Youth Engagement Advisory Committee, along with other youth serving agencies in Ajax, assisted in Ajax achieving GOLD status as a Youth Friendly Community. This is our second recognition, the first coming in 2005. As a Youth Friendly Community, it allows residents to be aware of our commitment to youth in Ajax, helping to build a healthier, stronger community.

We offer a variety of programs and events focused on youth. Please visit our youth website for additional information.
