The City of Fredericton's Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) was established to engage and represent the city's youth, ensuring their voices are heard and considered in municipal decision-making.
What we do
The YAC is a platform for young people to voice their opinions, ideas, and concerns about the issues that matter to them in their community. The committee undertakes a variety of initiatives, including:
- Advocating for youth-related issues and policies
- Proposing policies or initiatives that promote youth well-being and development
- Organizing and encouraging youth participation in community activities, events, workshops, and programs that cater to youth interests and needs
- Collaborating with other community organizations and stakeholders to ensure a coordinated approach to youth-related initiatives
- Conducting outreach efforts to educate youth about their rights, opportunities, and resources available to them
