Local Youth Councils

11 March 2018

Youth should be involved in political decision-making, but it’s not always obvious how to make sure that happens. One promising practice– the creation of youth councils or advisory groups – is attracting new interest from political leaders in Canada. Constituency youth councils are "generally organized by the local office of an elected representative, and provide a non-partisan forum for local youth (both under 18 and over) to meet with their" elected leaders and discuss political issues (the Samara Centre of Democracy, 2018).
