Foundry’s central office is looking for 1 to 2 youth representative(s) from each Foundry center, who are currently involved with their local Foundry youth advisory council, to join us in forming the Organizational Governance-Youth Advisory Committee (OG-YAC)!

Youth input is crucial to all the work that we do at Foundry. To further support youth input and involvement, the OG-YAC aims to strengthen youth in leadership working directly with Foundry’s central office.

OG-YAC members will have the opportunity to co-lead committee operations, and co-create a youth advisory committee targeted to their specific interests and needs. This provides space for members to identify any training or development opportunities of interest, as well as collaborate with other youth representatives from Foundry centers across the province.

The committee will run from March 2019 to March 2020 and will consist of a 1-hour monthly committee conference call, and a 30 minute monthly individual touch-base call with the Youth Peer Engagement Coordinator, Nancy. Other time commitments will be decided by the committee once established.

If you think this opportunity may be for you, we would love to hear from you! Please send Nancy (nzhao@foundrybc.ca) an email to receive the application form and further details. The deadline to complete and submit the application is Friday, March 8, 2019.

If you have any questions, please contact Nancy at nzhao@foundrybc.ca.
