Consultation has concluded

As Lethbridge grows, so too does its Youth!

The Youth Advisory Council exists to foster a relationship between Lethbridge City Council and the youth of the City of Lethbridge. We will accomplish this through Advocacy, Education and Engagement. The Youth Advisory Council will:

1. Act in an advisory capacity to City Council, the City of Lethbridge and community partners on issues relevant to youth and the community.

2. Conduct relevant research and consultation that addresses current, emerging and future concerns of Lethbridge youth.

3. Provide a forum to address and discuss concerns that affect youth in Lethbridge. The Youth Advisory Committee will also provide regular updates on activities, respond to inquiries, forward recommendations and raise awareness of issues affecting youth to City Council.

Who are the youth of Lethbridge?

Anyone between the ages of 14 and 25, however, we do understand definitions of this vary. Our focus is to ensure that all youth are represented. Accordingly, if you do not fit this category, but have thoughts that you think we need to hear, please let us know.

2019 Canadian Youthful Cities Index

In Fall 2018, we initiated involvement with Youthful Cities. Through their 2019 Canadian Youthful Cities Index, we will have the opportunity to obtain detailed measurements of how youthful Lethbridge is. Consequently, we will use this information to advise City Council, the City of Lethbridge and community partners on issues that are important to local youth.
