Y.E.S. Trails (Youth Engagement Strategy)

The Hamilton Burlington Trails Council is excited to announce the YES Trails Project!

The YES (Youth Engagement Strategy) Trails Project is aimed to promote the benefits of trail use to youth and increase participation on their local trails.

YES Trails will bring the following exciting opportunities:

Youth Surveys

We will be surveying youth to discover their outdoor recreation needs and identify opportunities to increase participation in trail activities!

Training Sessions

Training workshops will be open to volunteers and staff working with organizations in Hamilton and Burlington.

Participants will gain valuable information on healthy active living and their local trails to share with youth they work with.

Nature Kits

New nature tool kits will be available to facilitate your on-trail adventures!

Youth Programming

Post-workshop programming will be open to leaders and youth, giving them an opportunity to participate in trails activities.

Want to help out?

If you’d like to contribute to our Nature Kits, or share our survey with some of the youth you work with, please email admin@hamiltonburingtontrails.ca.
