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, all between the ages of 15 and 25, 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. Council terms run from May 2017 to May 2018.
