Our Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, has said that “young voices must be part of our decision making process” and that’s why I have launched an initiative to bring together youth from all across Delta to engage with the federal political process.
The Constituency Youth Council is a wonderful opportunity for youth to become involved with the local community, to explore and discuss the various aspects of governance that impact their lives, and to become part of a team that is working together to address the challenges faced by our youth today.
Our office has an open door policy regarding youth engagement in Delta – Although the 2018 CYC has already launched, we will continue to accept applications on a rolling-basis throughout the year as we want to encourage all interested youth to apply.
The council meets once a month to participate in group discussion on select topics and then, to present their suggestions and recommendations to me. As public service is crucial to good government, I am also hoping that the Council will find relevant ways to be engaged with the community so as to experience the real benefits of community service.
If you would like to join the Delta youth council, apply here!
