City introduces new advisory committee for young residents

Monday, August 12, 2019

Coinciding with International Youth Day (August 12) is the City of Leduc’s exciting announcement of a new advisory committee called the Youth Council. The Youth Council will be formed as a city advisory board to engage youth and plan for our future alongside the future generations. The committee will provide a forum for young people to participate in local government by researching, advising, proposing and planning actions in the community to Leduc City Council.

“As a former teacher, I strongly believe in the value our young residents bring to politics and decision-making,” says Leduc Mayor Bob Young. “We have a number of youth initiatives and who better to hear feedback from than our youth themselves. Serving on any board or committee is a great way to get your voice heard and make a difference in your community, and now our young people can have this same opportunity.”

The city is seeking five to thirteen young residents, ages 16 - 22, to be part of Leduc’s Youth Council. Recruitment efforts will be running Sept. 3 - 23, 2019.
