Purpose

The purpose of the Youth Advisory Committee is to receive direct citizen input into matters relating to youth in order to enhance the well-being of youth in our community. Please view the Youth Advisory Committee information, Chapter 75 in the Woodstock Municipal Code.

Members

The Woodstock Youth Advisory Committee shall be composed of the following voting members:

  1. two members of Woodstock City Council for the current term; and
  2. up to five youth members who shall be a resident within the City of Woodstock with preference being given to representatives from each secondary school in the City. By-law 9224-18 – August 9, 2018.

The Committee may invite either youth or adults from a youth sector organization such as arts and entertainment, sports and fitness, justice, employment, and education or other interested groups that participate in youth issues within Woodstock to participate and provide information and advice to the Committee but these members shall not be voting members.

More information about this committee can be found by reviewing Chapter 75 of the Woodstock Municipal Code.
