What is it?
The Edson Youth Council will consist of up to 12 youth. They will work closely with the Mayor, two Town Councillors, and have administrative support from a Community Development Coordinator.
The purpose of Youth Council is to provide Youth with a platform to let their voices to be heard and to have a positive impact. It will provide Youth with better opportunities to become connected and meaningfully involved in their community.
What is required of Council members?
Members of Youth Council will be required to attend monthly meetings, represent youth perspectives on issues at these meetings, volunteer at community events, and work with Town Council representatives to address youth needs in the community.
What are the benefits of being on Youth Council?
Benefits include a $500 bursary towards post-secondary education for every year of participation, the opportunity to learn about Local Government and how it affects them, and the opportunity to make an impact in their community while making Edson a better place for Youth. Did we also mention free pizza at meetings?
