Apply to Be a LYAC Candidate

 Are you someone who is 15-25 years old and wants to create change?

The London Youth Advisory Council is a group of fifteen young people who are elected by the public to represent the 14 wards of London and Western University. During their one year term, they hold weekly meetings on a variety of community topics from transit to racism, network with politicians and community organizers, and advocate on the issues that matter to young people. If you want a seat at the table and the chance to learn more about what London has to offer, apply to be a candidate at before 11:59pm on April 8th. No political experience required, and lots of support from youth staff at the LYAC!
