CURRENTLY RECRUITING
CO-CREATING A SUSTAINABLE BC 2020-21!

About Us

Youth engagement and capacity building is a key component of the Fraser Basin Council. Since 2006, the FBC Youth Program has been focusing on building capacity for youth to engage in sustainability initiatives, deepen understanding on complex issues, gain skills, and access opportunities to take on leadership roles to serve their communities. FBC’s vision for youth engagement is for youth and young adults to actively participate in and contribute to social, environmental, and economic well-being in communities throughout the Fraser Basin and across BC.

Over the years, FBC has engaged youth in many areas including: policy and decision making, leadership and skill building, outreach and engagement, building resilient communities, and connecting education to practice.

Youth Advisory Committee

FBC has an appointed youth director on its Board to reflect youth values and to bring a youth voice to FBC’s decision-making processes. 

Welcome
2020-2021 Youth Advisory Committee!

We are currently reviewing applications.

Our youth program’s initiatives are informed and shaped by the Youth Advisory Committee. The Committee supports the youth director and provides an opportunity to inform the other directors about sustainability issues of importance to youth in BC communities.
