The application process is now open for MP Thomas’ 2024/2025 Youth Advisory Board!
If you are between the ages of 16 and 24, passionate about your community, wish to grow in leadership, and want to learn more about federal politics, the Lethbridge Youth Advisory Board could be for you!
Eight youth from the Lethbridge riding will be selected for this year's Youth Advisory Board, which will run from September 2024 to June 2025.
The board will meet once a month on a Saturday, during which time members will have the opportunity to share their perspective and ask questions about federal legislation and key events. The issues and topics put forward for discussion are determined by the youth at the table, so this is your chance to have a voice and send your MP back to Parliament with your unique insights.
In addition to having the opportunity to interact with the Member of Parliament, successful applicants will be seated at the table with other young leaders from the community, which results in rich dialogue, thought-provoking questions, and strategic action.
This opportunity is non-partisan and all youth who are passionate about the betterment of their community and curious about the federal political process are encouraged to apply.
You don’t need to be a policy expert. You just need to be interested in federal politics and excited to learn!
Those who successfully complete this year-long initiative will receive a certificate of completion and a letter of commendation. Students are also encouraged to seek school credit for their participation in the program.
To be considered for this unique opportunity, you must apply by 11:59pm on Friday, March 15th.
All applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application by April 30th.
