BE PART OF OUR

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. 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. We recruit youth to join our advisory committee every year. Find out how you can join the committee and be the voice for youth in your community. Email us at youth@fraserbasin.bc.ca.

FBC’s Youth Advisory Committee brings a fresh perspective to the work of our Youth Program. Youth on the Committee are young leaders ages 16-30 from around BC with a passion for sustainability and community well-being. The Committee provides high-level input that helps to shape the development of the Youth Program and our current initiatives. They also help plan, develop and implement sustainability initiatives that engage youth and build their skills and capacity.

2020-21 youth Advisory Committee Application is now Closed.

We will be announcing new Youth Advisory Committee soon. Stay tuned!

The Committee will be composed of up to 14 youth representatives (aged 16-30) living in 6 major regions of the province, who will be a voice for youth in their communities on sustainability and climate change issues. Youth sitting on the Advisory Committee will share their unique perspectives and ideas, and help shape the FBC Youth Program’s initiatives to better serve all youth across the province.

FBC Youth Advisory Committee members:

  1. Provide advice and input on the activities of the FBC’s Youth Program;
  2. Identify opportunities to incorporate youth perspectives into FBC activities; and
  3. Identify approaches to more creatively engage youth and young adults in their respective regions throughout BC to inform FBC of sustainability- and climate change-related priorities important to youth.

In addition, the Committee members have an opportunity to learn about regional climate change and sustainability issues in other parts of the province, and have the unique opportunity to build networks and relationships with fellow youth throughout BC.
