Mayor’s Youth Leadership Team
This first-ever initiative has inspired, educated and empowered youth leaders (ages 15 – 24 years) from our community. These youth leaders participated on behalf of the Mayor and the City of Windsor in welcoming thousands of visitors from around the world, beginning with the 13th FINA World Swimming Championships (25m). The goal of this program is empowerment: these young people are leading by example!
The Mayor’s Youth Leadership Team (MYLT) met bi-weekly for training sessions in hospitality and tourism, goal setting, volunteerism, and customer service. Professionals from around Windsor educated the students on these topics, promoting networking and involvement in the community. The MYLT members continue to volunteer their time representing the Mayor and the 13th FINA World Swimming Championships at different events around the city.
The MYLT have volunteered for numerous events throughout the city such as:
The 13th FINA World Swimming Championships (25M)
The 99th MasterCard Memorial Cup
The City of Windsor's Annual Birthday Celebration and Mayor's Walk
