Youth Opportunities

Get Involved in The County

County youth can get involved in local government in a number of ways. Read on for opportunities to get involved, have your say, and learn about how local government works.

The Hour-for-Hour Challenge

The Hour-for Hour Challenge encourages municipalities to provide hour-for-hour volunteer compensation to secondary school students who partake in activities such as watching Council and Committee/Board meetings. Students may be asked to write about their volunteer experience or participate in follow-up surveys and discussion groups.

The Ontario Ministry of Education requires that each student complete 40 hours of volunteer activities in the community in order to earn their Ontario Secondary School Diploma. The Hour-for-Hour Challenge provides high school students with an opportunity to earn these 40 volunteer hours by sharing a youth perspective on the governance work of the municipality.

To register for the Hour for Hour Challenge, local youth should contact Joy McLeod, Executive Assistant to the Mayor, at jmcleod@pecounty.on.ca.

Employment

Each year, The County posts several opportunities for student employment during the summer months. Student job postings are updated on the Employment page.

Committees

The Environmental Advisory Committee and the Community and Economic Development Commission each have a membership position for a youth representative. Additionally, Council has lowered the minimum age to serve on a committee or board to 16-years-old from 18-years-old.

Learn more about volunteer committees and current openings.

Classroom Engagement

Each year, the Clerk’s Office hosts local elementary or secondary school classes that express interest in learning more about local government. Currently, these presentations and activities are only available online due to COVID-19 protocols. 

For more information, or to register for a classroom presentation, please email clerks@pecounty.on.ca.
