Youth Advisory Committee

The Youth Advisory Committee (Bylaw C-1208-22) was established by Council and provides an opportunity for youth to engage in the community to accurately represent a youth perspective on a variety of municipal issues and provide recommendations to Council on these issues. The committee is responsible for coordinating youth specific initiatives that profile local youth issues, develop relationships with stakeholders addressing youth issues, provide recommendations to Council on matters that directly impact the youth, offer a youth lens on youth-oriented City programs and services, and consult with Administration to support youth initiatives.

Youth Members who fulfill their commitment to the Committee as outlined in Bylaw C-1208-22 will be awarded a $500 bursary after the end of the appointment and upon registration in a Certification Program. Youth Members are entitled to only one bursary.

The Board shall be comprised of up to 11 youth members from Spruce Grove between the ages of 12 and 18, effective September 1. Two members of Council are appointed to the Board to provide governance insight and mentorship. Administrative support will help guide the committee with governance rules, meeting preparation, and bursary allocation. Council shall appoint Youth Members for a one-year term. Appointments shall automatically renew for one year until age of Committee majority or up to a maximum of three terms, pending agreement of the Youth Member.
