Youth Advisory Board 2020 – Ten young people ready to get involved for their community

The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, John Belvedere, and the members of City Council are proud to present the ten young people who will make up the City of Pointe-Claire Youth Advisory Board in 2020!

“For its first mandate last year, the Youth Advisory Board submitted several ideas for improving young people’s living environment, whether through the programs of activities, events or facilities. They helped plan and inaugurate the skateboard park; organize an evening of music and light for young people as part of the LUMINA exhibition at the Stewart Hall Art Gallery; and design and create a mural for the skatepark,” the mayor says.

These young people aged 14 to 21, who are bilingual, residents of Pointe-Claire and involved in their community, will begin their mandate in January. Out of the 10 young people who make up the Board, six are back for a second term, and they are excited to welcome the four new members.

These youths will participate in seven meetings during year to examine projects and make recommendations to City Council. They will contribute to enhancing activities, facilities and public services to better meet their needs and those of the community. They will also be asked to represent the City of Pointe-Claire at events and activities.

“These young people will have the opportunity to get involved in their community, have their say on various projects and events and suggest ways to improve their living environment. We wish them the best of luck in their mandate!” Mayor Belvedere concludes.
