The District One Youth Advisory Committee is a made up from a group of youth aged 15-20 years old who are a resident of or attend a school within District One. The Youth Advisory Committee (or YAC for short) works on and participates in a number of events and projects aimed at serving the local community.
One of the many goals of the Youth Advisory Committee is to create strong and independent leaders for tomorrow. This committee helps youth to understand the role of local government in their daily lives, gives them a voice at City Hall, provides them valuable real-life experience, and helps them meet and interact with people from all walks of life. Those who have gone through a year with this committee will tell you, it’s a rewarding and fun experience.

Criteria for joining is simple: Be aged 15-20 and be a resident and/or attend school in District One. We’re looking forward to the new faces for next year’s committee, and we can’t wait to see what this year’s group comes up with!
