Youth engagement and capacity building is a key component of the Fraser Basin Council.

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.
