Pointe-Claire Youth Advisory Board seeking candidates for its next mandate
The City of Pointe-Claire is currently seeking candidates to sit on the Youth Advisory Board for 2021.
The Youth Advisory Board was set up in November 2018 to allow 10 young, bilingual Pointe-Claire residents, aged 14 to 21, who are involved in the community, to contribute to municipal life for a one-year term. The Board has the support of a City councillor, a City manager and a school representative.
During their mandate, the members of the Board analyze projects and make recommendations to City Council with a view to improving activities, services and public facilities to better meet the needs of Pointe-Claire’s young residents.
In 2020, the Board members participated in a promotional campaign to remind Pointe-Claire youth to stay home, in order to limit the spread of COVID-19. The president and vice-president also interviewed the mayor, John Belvedere, about the pandemic and its impact in the community. The members also continue to work on various files chosen at the beginning of their mandate.
Any young Pointe-Claire residents wishing to get involved in their community have until September 21 to submit their application. Candidates will be evaluated based on criteria such as community involvement.
