The London Youth Advisory Council

The London Youth Advisory Council (LYAC) exists to ensure that youth voices are heard and integrated into local public policy decisions. The LYAC believes that the optimism, idealism and passion of youth can be leveraged to change the way that London addresses the challenges facing the future of our City.

The LYAC council has 15 members, representing each of the 14 wards of London, with a 15th representing Western students specifically. Youth Councillors have weekly conversations on a variety of issues, from carding, to Education, to Transit, and more! Youth Councillors do the majority of their work between meetings: attending community events, holding focus groups, interviewing local community leaders, and facilitating community development projects.
