Foothills MP John Barlow last week launched the new Foothills Youth Advisory Committee.
Barlow said it is the vision of the youth advisory committee to be a non-partisan community link between young people and federal government representatives.
“The youth of Foothills have strong and passionate voices, and I want to hear from them,” Barlow said. “This youth advisory committee will be a platform to encourage engagement and participation for those that want to be involved, and want to be heard. I’m here to listen.”
This initiative calls upon all youth between the ages of 14 to 24 in the Foothills area, to bring new energy and ideas to the committee and be a voice for the youth of the community.
Applications are being accepted until April 27.
Once selected, the council will meet several times through the year to discuss issues.
“This youth council shows that our constituency cares about our young people and it gives youth a place to discuss issues that matter to them in a non-partisan and productive environment,”, said Erin Porter, who will chair the committee.
Applications are accepted at
