The City of Powell River is seeking meaningful input from Powell River residents between the ages of 13 and 23!

Join the Powell River Youth Council to identify and research issues important to youth, present to Council and help the City to ensure that Powell River is a great place for teens and young adults.

The Youth Council will be selected by a group of City Councillors and the membership will be for a one-year term – January to December each year. In addition to attending the monthly meetings, members will liaise with the community, research issues, and provide input at Council’s Committee of the Whole and Council meetings. Learn how municipal government works, how to create change at the municipal level, and how to facilitate participatory decision-making in the community. This is a great volunteer opportunity.

Interested? Complete this survey by February 12, 2016. If shortlisted, you will be contacted for an interview soon after the deadline. The first Youth Council meeting will be held in March 2016. Info creds: City Hall.
