We are thrilled to announce we are currently recruiting young adults through greater Saint John to join the YMCA Youth Council. If you are between the ages of 19 and 26, love your community, and want to create a positive, impactful change then this opportunity is for you! The YMCA Youth Council values and is seeking diverse perspectives, backgrounds, and ideas.
The YMCA of Greater Saint John’s Youth Council was formed in September of 2017, with a goal to serve as a forum for open dialogue between the Y and the youth population within greater Saint John. Throughout the past four years, the council has provided mentorship to YMCA young leaders, hosted workshops and developed recommendations for the City of Saint John’s growth committee, engaged community stakeholders, and facilitated an employability program curriculum for the Y.
The council has also represented the YMCA of Greater Saint John international at YMCA 175 – a global youth conference with a goal to help shape a positive and sustainable future.
In addition to their work, the Y’s Youth Council was nominated for a Faces of Fusion Community Builder Award in 2019.
