The City of Victoria is looking for 10 people between the ages of 12 to 24 to become part of a youth team that will help revolutionize how the city engages with young people.

According to the city, people under the age of 25 represent 22 per cent of Victoria’s population, but are underrepresented when it comes to their involvement in shaping where they live. The city is hoping to get more young voices involved in local government by learning how young people want to engage with their city.

The youth team will lead the engagement of their peers and develop a youth engagement strategy this summer.

Each member will receive a $1,000 honorarium. A short video or written submission is required to apply. The application deadline is April 21.
