Are you a Junior or Senior High school student between the ages of 14 and 19 who wants to contribute to education in Alberta?
The Education Minister's Youth Council is now recruiting for the 2020-2021 year. Forty students will be selected to build their leadership skills at the provincial level, make an impact on education, and leave a legacy for the future.
LRSD's own Nick Housenga has been a part of the Minister's Youth Council for the 2019-2020 school year. Will you be next? During the school year, the council attends 3 meetings in Edmonton and provides their perspectives on a number of education topics. Students of diverse interests and perspectives from all regions of Alberta develop a greater understanding of Alberta's education system, see their role in driving change, and develop new relationships with a diverse group of students and adults.
The application deadline is March 18, 2020. Details and application information is available at https://www.alberta.ca/student-engagement.aspx.
