The RMYC has worked over the past two decades under the mentorship of Moffat Makuto to provide youth with a voice in Thunder Bay, to build leaders, and to offer safe and positive outlets for the boundless enthusiasm of youth.

“We must invest in the next generation,” shared Moffat. “We need to support all children, reach out to youth who are vulnerable and at risk, and help those whose families, neighbourhoods and communities are marginalized”.

“It is truly an honour,” said Samantha Smith on behalf of the RMYC Youth. “None of us do anything for awards, but it is great to be recognized”.
