Our Youth Central steering committees are currently recruiting! Join one of our program’s steering committees that interests you to gain leadership, communication and teamwork skills. Youth Central steering committees vary in commitment required, but can be anywhere from one hour per week to one hour every two weeks. The Calgary Youth Foundation and the Mayor’s Youth Council deadline is September 12th. All other programs recruiting deadlines are September 26th. 

The application deadline for Youth Central committees for the 2016-2017 program year has now passed. Thank you! 

CALGARY YOUTH FOUNDATION: Deadline is September 12. Involving youth in a hands-on approach to philanthropy, the Calgary Youth Foundation provides youth with an opportunity to create positive change in their community. Each year Youth Foundation members promote the granting cycles, grant over $12,000 to youth driven projects and fundraise for their endowment fund.

MAYOR’S YOUTH COUNCIL: Deadline is September 12 and will require an additional application. The Mayor’s Youth Council consists of youth ages 13-18 who choose topics relevant to youth and report their findings to The City of Calgary. Along with advising the municipal government on issues important to youth, the MYC offers youth input to a variety of citywide organizations.

TD YOUTH EARTH AMBASSADORS: This leadership committee aims to connect like minded youth from various schools and community agencies to foster collaboration and create positive environmental change.

YOUTH OF DISTINCTION AWARDS: This annual city-wide awards program recognize deserving youth, 12-18 years of age, for the remarkable ways they choose to live and the impact they make to those around them. Members of the committee promote city wide nominations, select entertainment, plan the award ceremony, as well as choose the recipients of the awards.
