Youth Advisory Council (YAC)

Background

The Youth Advisory Council of Fort St. John was developed in 2010 as a potential solution toward antisocial behaviour in our community, to get a better sense of what Fort St. John’s youth would like to see in Fort St. John, and to act as a liaison between the youth of the community and City Council. It is the vision of the committee to provide a link between the youth of Fort St. John and City Council.

The Fort St. John Youth Advisory Council will enhance the quality of life of youth by providing information, resources, and leadership to both their peers and City Council while creating positive alternative activities for young people to participate in.

The purpose of the Youth Advisory Council is to: keep City Council informed of important matters affecting youth in Fort St. John, to act as an advocate for youth and seek input from youth on important issues, the provide leadership experiences, and to help enhance the image of youth in our community.
