If you know a student looking to make a difference in their high school, this might be their chance. Application for the province's "Minister’s Youth Council" (MYC) is now open for junior and senior high students.

The MYC is made up of about forty junior and senior high school students from across Alberta. The student members of the council provide their thoughts on a range of academic topics. The Minister's Youth Council is open to students for a ten-month term that coincides with the school year. The council participates in three meetings over the academic year.

When applying, you will have to answer a few questions about community, perspective, leadership and passion (for youth engagement and advocacy). Here are a few of the questions: 

  • Why do you think it is important for youth to contribute to their communities in a positive way? 
  • How have your lived experiences contributed to your values?
  • Describe how this leadership skill could positively contribute to the Minister’s Youth Council.
  • In the Kindergarten to Grade 12 education system, what are three issues that are important to you or to your fellow students?
