The Member of Parliament for Oakville North Burlington is looking for high school students who are interested in becoming members of her 2018-19 Youth Council.

Ms Damoff writes:

Oakville North Burlington“With school now fully back into session I am looking to select high school students from Oakville North-Burlington to join my youth council.

“If you or someone you know has a passion for social justice and an interest in learning more about the Canadian political process I hope you take the time to apply.

“My youth council meets approximately once a month during the school year and it provides an opportunity for you to learn from community leaders, meet other students interested in making a difference and provides a forum for you to let me know on how best the federal government can represent you!

“Previous youth councils have participated in a blanket exercise at Crawford Lake, learned from mental health experts from the Canadian Mental Health Association, and enjoyed some delicious smoothies after powering Halton Food for Thought’s Blender Bike.
