Engaging the community

Residents help keep Clarington beautiful at the annual Pitch-in Week event

Clarington works with many community organizations who offer programs and services to residents. We produce a quarterly Community Connections newsletter that contains information and educational opportunities for community groups and organizations. Clarington assists a variety of local organizations by promoting their events and programs. The Municipality also runs a community event sponsorship program to provide financial assistance to local groups who host events that benefit residents.

Clarington has a new online volunteer matching program that showcases volunteer opportunities throughout the community for those wishing to engage and help others. Clarington also offers training and educational seminars for the volunteer community on a variety of topics.

Engaging youth and providing young people with more activities is a priority. Clarington has worked closely with the John Howard Society to open new youth centres in Courtice and Newcastle. The Loft opened in Courtice in September 2018, and for teens in Newcastle, Newcastle Youth Centre opened in December 2018.  These youth centres engage young people and offer after-school activities and a safe space to make friends and meet new people.
