Help turn Y4Y's positive vision into a reality!
Governance & Administration: Y4Y's Governance & Administration Committee will be working to develop the internal decision-making processes that will help Y4Y become a strong, well-governed, non-profit organisation. Good governance is essential to the longevity of an organisation. Volunteering on this Committee will provide insight and experience to those interested in management, the responsibilities of Boards of Directors, and policy-making.
Arts, Culture & Events: The Arts, Culture & Events Committee will work to develop Y4Y's contacts with English-speaking Quebec's rich artistic community, as well as contribute to the planning of upcoming Y4Y Events, such as our Fall Fundraiser, youth consultations, and our Annual General Meeting.
Social Media: Y4Y's Social Media Committee will help the staff to keep the new website up-to-date with news, events, and points-of-interest for youth across Quebec. Volunteers on this Committee will be encouraged to suggest new ways of promoting Y4Y's activities, and to get creative with posts!
Policy Committee: Y4Y's Policy Committee will engage in research on political figures, organisations, and policies that affect youth in Quebec. Volunteers on this Committee will work together to create policy briefs, discuss current events as they relate to the English-speaking youth community, and often attend political events with Y4Y staff!
Regional Table: Y4Y's Regional Table Committee will be responsible for reaching out to partners in the regions of Quebec where English-speaking youths often experience a sense of isolation, and have fewer opportunities generally. Volunteers on this Committee will help Y4Y develop its contacts in these regions, strategize for youth consultations across Quebec, and develop our "Your region of Quebec" tab on the website. Participation here is a great opportunity to learn more about the English-speaking community of Quebec from the perspective of youths from the regions!
