Youth Advisory Council - YAC
We want to hear from youth ages 12 - 18!

The Youth Advisory Council of Fort St. John was developed in 2010 as a potential solution toward antisocial behavior in our community, to get a better sense of what Fort St. John's youth would like to see in Fort St. John, and to act as a liaison between the youth of the community and City Council.

It is the vision of the committee to provide a link between the youth of Fort St. John and City Council.

The Fort St. John Youth Advisory Council will enhance the quality of life of youth by providing information, resources, and leadership to both their peers and City Council, while creating positive alternative activities for young people to participate in.

What do youth in FSJ want? What would be the ultimate event? Bring your ideas to our YAC meetings and help us create better events/workshops/programs for youth in FSJ.

Meetings take place on the first and third Tuesday of every month from 4:30pm - 5:30pm at City Hall.

Contact Lisa for more information at 250-787-5791.
