SDYC Co-Chair Alena Hojdelewicz says, “Being a part of SDYC is an amazing opportunity to get involved in interesting projects, gain valuable experience, and have your voice heard. Plus, you’ll have some fun along the way!”
“Youth Councillors are able to provide a youth perspective on the district’s annual plans and community strategies, and the experience can lead onto opportunities such as Youth Parliament and Model UN,” she says.
Youth Councillors attend two meetings each month, a formal meeting and a projects meeting. Past events delivered by SDYC include On The Bus trips, Colour In The Park and A Scary Night. New ideas are always welcome!
