YOUTH LEADERSHIP COUNCIL

The OGYF Youth Leadership Council will be formed as a diverse group of dedicated young people from the National Capital Region who are looking to have their voices heard and advocate, as a collective, for their community.

The Youth Leadership Council will help identify the needs of youth in the Ottawa and Gatineau region and champion key projects that they believe will provide a measurable impact in our community, while advising the OGYF staff and Board on granting decisions in the areas of physical wellness, mental wellness, and social justice.
