Dear Calgary Youth,
Canada's youth are the leaders of tomorrow and it is important that our younger populations have an active role in shaping what their futures look like. As such, I am requesting applications for the 2020-2021 Calgary Signal Hill MP's Youth Advisory Council.
This Council brings together youth from across Calgary to engage with the federal political process and discuss topics important to its members. During our 2019-2020 Youth Council, we had over 20 engaged members and we examined important topics like the three Es (energy, the economy and the environment), Canadian arctic security, Canada-China relations and more!
Learning about politics and life as a citizen is an important part of the transition to adulthood. Young people have different perspectives and ideas on a number of issues, and we want to hear from the youth in our community.
MP Ron Liepert is inviting anyone ages 15-25 from within or outside of the constituency to apply to the 2020-2021 Calgary Signal Hill MP's Youth Advisory Council. Applications must be submitted by August 31, with interviews to take place in early September.
Once selected, the Council will meet quarterly to discuss the issues important to our members, community and country.
If you want to join the Calgary Signal Hill MP's Youth Advisory Council, apply here!
