Youth Advisory Council

Mandate

The Youth Advisory Council exists to foster a relationship between Lethbridge City Council and the youth of the City of Lethbridge. We will accomplish this through Advocacy, Education and Engagement. The Youth Advisory Council will:

  1. Act in an advisory capacity to City Council, the City of Lethbridge and community partners on issues relevant to youth and the community. In the event the YAC is required to report to City Council, they will report to the Cultural & Social Standing Policy Committee;
     
  2. Conduct relevant research and consultation that addresses current, emerging and future concerns of Lethbridge youth; and
     
  3. Provide a forum to address and discuss concerns that affect youth in Lethbridge. Provide regular updates to the Cultural & Social Standing Policy Committee on activities, respond to inquiries, forward recommendations, and raise awareness of issues affecting youth.

Meetings of the Youth Advisory Council are open to the public to attend. Meetings are held on the third Thursday of the month from 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM in the Culver City Meeting Room at City Hall (Main Floor).
