Alberta Education: Students invited to sit on the Minister’s Youth Council
Posted on March 27th, 2017
The province’s education system exists to prepare Alberta students for success and the decisions that affect them need to include their voice. That’s why Alberta Education is inviting Alberta-based students to be part of its Minister’s Youth Council.
The council, which consists of approximately 32 junior high and senior high students with diverse interests, identities, backgrounds and perspectives from all regions of Alberta, meets three times a year to discuss issues relating to education. Those selected will serve a 10-month term beginning in the 2017–2018 school year. Throughout the year, their input will help guide the province’s education initiatives and decisions. In addition to sharing ideas with the Education Minister and Alberta Education, students selected will also have the opportunity to interact with each other outside of these meetings to discuss ideas and upcoming activities.
