The municipality is looking for youth to join in the annual MACOY Recruitement.
Known simply as the Mayor’s Advisory Council on Youth, anyone in Grades 9 – 12 or are connected to youth agencies can apply and become actively engaged citizens with a voice in decisions that affect them.
“MACOY is a great way for students to become more involved with their community, be a voice for their fellow youth, and collectively work towards a common goal,” said Seville Kwan, Community Strategies Coordinator.
Members of the council will have an opportunity to make a difference in the community by getting chances to deliver personal ideas, discuss topics and take action in the community.
They will also be given a chance to experience many meaningful activities that will continue their educational opportunities throughout the school year.
MACOY meets once per month and also participates in numerous events during the year.
