Do you know someone who:

  • Is between the ages of 14-24
  • Lives in Peel Region (Brampton, Caledon or Mississauga)
  • Is passionate about making things better for young people in Peel, is ready to contribute and wants to take on a leadership role
  • Can commit to a meaningful volunteer opportunity that offers skill-building and professional development

Encourage them to apply for a position on the PCYI Youth Advisory Council.

The Council gives input to the Peel Children and Youth Initiative and makes recommendations to inform priorities and work. They take the lead on consulting their peers, and also run their own initiatives for youth in Peel based on what they think is important and what they would like to get some experience working on.

“We are in place to make sure that the organizations offering programs and services for youth actually hear from youth.”

We review applications not only on merit, but also with the lens of ensuring our Youth Advisory Council members are a diverse cross-section of Peel’s youth population. To apply, submit this form. For any questions, contact Tobi Ajibolade, Youth Engagement Coordinator, at tajibolade@pcyi.org.

We are looking for new members to join our Youth Advisory Council (YAC)!
