This Monday the Youth advisory council arrange a youth council meeting in West Vancouver community center. YAC is an organization that helps raise awareness about local politics among youth. As the co-chair of the team, I realized that our team needed to gain some expertise about local government and the politics in order to inform the youth in our community. We are lucky to have Councillor Booth, a District of West Vancouver council member, as a consultant of our team, providing us with mentorship. As well, our team has attended several council meetings  in order to have a direct perspective of how government works. Using this unique experience, we presented a “youth council meeting” during Youth Week in order to demonstrate our initiatives and purpose to the youth of our community. This is one small step in engaging our youth in politics and we are striving for more initiatives for the coming year.
