The Markham Mayor’s Youth Council (MMYC) is a group of diverse and dedicated students
representing the fabric of Markham’s youth community as a youth-based branch of the Markham City Council.
Along with connecting youth with Markham Councillors and the Mayor of Markham, the purpose of the
MMYC is to provide local youth a voice by which they may give input and develop initiatives
to enhance youth opportunities within the City of Markham.
The Markham Mayor’s Youth Council is once again hosting EVOLVE, an annual event dedicated to helping elementary school students and grade 9 students adapt a smooth transition to high school.
Sign ups have officially opened and all students in Grades 7 to 9 are strongly encouraged to sign up at markhamyouth.ca/events/EVOLVE2023/signup.
On Saturday, February 4th, 2023 from 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM, we will be hosting our annual leadership conference EVOLVE at Rouge River Community Centre. The purpose of this event is to prepare incoming high school students for the next step of their education with topics such as high school programs, volunteering and reach ahead opportunities. These topics will be communicated through our well-rounded guest speakers and youth council fair. To sign up, students must fill out the form found at markhamyouth.ca/events/EVOLVE2023/signup.
