Youth Advisory Board: Call for candidates 2023
The City is currently seeking dynamic and committed candidates wishing to volunteer and sit on the Youth Advisory Board from January 2023 to August 2024. Exceptionally, given the Board’s calendar is in a year of transition, candidates will commit to a 20-month term. Subsequent terms will be for 12 months.
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. To do this, the Board is supported by a City Council member, a member of the City’s staff and a school representative.
During their mandate, Board members analyze projects and make recommendations to City Council with a view to improving activities, municipal services and public facilities to better meet the needs of Pointe-Claire’s young residents, and to promote the participation of young people in their living environment and in their community.
Youth Advisory Board members meet on a monthly basis. Those interested in becoming a member must be available to attend an average of one meeting a month on Wednesdays.
The Youth Advisory Board is active on Instagram to share their projects and ideas with young Pointe-Claire residents, and so that they can follow the issues important to them.
Young Pointe-Claire residents wishing to get involved in their community have until September 10, 4 p.m to submit their application. Candidates will be evaluated based on criteria such as community involvement.
