Engaging student voice in district planning and improvement is vital. Students on the GYPSD Superintendent’s Youth Council will provide their perspectives on educational issues. GYPSD prepares students for success and the decisions that affect them require their engagement and voice.
The Superintendent’s Youth Council will allow students to:
Build positive working relationships with others across the division
Lead by example in school
Provide input on education initiatives
Participate in leadership opportunities
Council members will meet up to three times a year to discuss issues that matter to them and interact with the Superintendent of Schools to share their ideas and perspectives on education. Students will serve as leaders in their schools, engaging their peers in conversations, and leading change through action projects.
Five of the Superintendent’s council members out of the 25 chosen from all schools will have the opportunity to attend an incredible week-long conference in our nation’s capital city, Ottawa. Become an ambassador for your province or territory, by sharing your interests, hopes and dreams with other involved young Canadians.
