Our National Youth Council is heading to Parliament Hill!
As a youth-centred organization, we are committed to creating space for youth to speak up and be heard on issues that are important to them. Through our annual YOUth in Office event, Big Brothers Big Sisters and Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada provide youth with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet MPs, Senators, and other elected officials.
This year’s event takes place October 29-30. Following a different format than in previous years, 26 youth from both organizations will tackle issues of Youth Employment and Mental Health through committee meetings.
