One of AMO’s priorities is to encourage more young people to get involved in municipal government and run for municipal council. The Youth Engagement Strategy approved by the AMO Board of Directors in fall 2018 aims to do just that. This strategy is built around three key objectives:

  • Objective #1: Establish programs that provide young Ontarians with the tools to participate in municipal government, including participation through elected office.
  • Objective #2: Connect and profile existing youth-focused initiatives in the municipal sector.
  • Objective #3: Use communications and social media platforms to expand AMO’s reach to youth.

As part of AMO’s Youth Engagement Strategy, this fellowship provides three young community-oriented and engaged people the opportunity to connect with the AMO Board, learn more about municipal government and policy, and receive mentorship from municipally-elected officials. Apply today! The deadline to apply is Friday, November 1, 2019.
