Call for Applications: Minister's Youth Council 2018-19
David Eggen, Minister of Education invites junior and senior high school students to join the Minister's Youth Council.
Westwood Community High School's Fajar Khan was the only student selected from Fort McMurray last year to sit on the Council. She highly recommends applying:
"My experience with the Minister's Youth Council has been phenomenal. It has given me a chance to meet likeminded people from across the province. I have a new understanding for many things including recognizing that implementing change is not an overnight process; it takes time, patience, and consensus. I believe students should apply as it allows them to understand that their voice is wanted in a place where they can make the most impact."

Student voice allows the government to better understand what changes are really needed. Change comes when people take the first step to make it happen. Participating on the Minister's Youth Council has empowered me and enhanced my leadership skills. I encourage all students to apply," noted Khan, who graduates this year.
Deadline for applications is March 30, 2018. Further details can be found here.
