Will Represent Voice Of Saskatchewan Students.
Plans have been announced to form Saskatchewan’s first provincial youth council.
The Minister of Education will be looking to the youth council to provide advice and leadership on how to engage youth on a variety of topics. Those students selected for the youth council will have an important role in defining working principles, the council’s direction moving forward and representing their peers.
The 12 members selected for the minister’s youth council will come from every region of the province and bring diverse interests, backgrounds, experiences and perspectives. Nominations will be sought from school divisions, First Nations and Métis education organizations and directors of independent schools throughout the province. They will be asked to nominate students entering grades 10, 11 or 12 in the 2019-20 school year who they believe would make a significant contribution serving on the council.
Information packages with further information on the nomination criteria will be distributed to the nominating organizations in the coming weeks. An initial in-person gathering of the minister’s youth council will be planned in the fall of 2019.
