The Fredericton Constituency Youth Council has returned for its 2nd year!
The Council is composed of 18 young people aged between 14 and 24 years old. Members are assigned to one of three taskforces, assigned a community Mentor and are asked to select a public policy issue of their choice in order to prepare an annual report which will be presented at a public dialogue and submitted to my colleagues in Ottawa at the end of their term. The FCYC will also lead an annual community Project.
The Council sits between October 2017 and April 2018.
The FCYC will meet as a group several times a year in order to discuss important issues that matter to you, your community and your country. Following the example of our Prime Minister and Minister of Youth, Justin Trudeau, the feedback gathered in our discussions will be used to understand the perspective of youth in the decisions the federal government makes.
Youth who are selected for the council will also learn about the Canadian political process, different issue areas under federal jurisdiction, gain valuable leadership skills and earn volunteer hours. Each member will also earn a certificate at the end of the Youth Council term.
In order for your application to the FCYC to be considered, please submit this form no later than September 30, 2017. If you have any questions, please email Myriam Whalen at Matt.DeCourcey.firstname.lastname@example.org.
