The Fed is committed to engaging and amplifying the voices of youth in and from care. The Fed’s Youth Leadership Council is a brand new way you can practice your leadership skills and make sure the voices of youth are heard by the Fed staff team and decision-makers across the province.
You asked us to find new and innovative ways to connect youth members directly to Fed planning and decision-making. The Youth Leadership Council is an important first step to making sure you have a consistent and recognized voice at every planning table.
The Leadership Council will bring forward the perspectives and lived experience of youth from every region in BC: the Interior, the North, Vancouver Island and the Coast Fraser region.
The Leadership Council might be the right fit for you, if you want to:
- share your knowledge of what’s going on in your region and community;
- bring forward the experience and perspectives of your peers in care;
- develop your leadership skills; and
- make a direct contribution to Fed planning and decision-making
We’d love to hear from you.
