When students have meaningful opportunities to participate in their own education, it can have a positive impact on their lives, their communities, and the province as a whole.  A student from our constituency was chosen to serve on this year’s Youth Council and recommends it as “a great opportunity for students to make an impact on their own education.” MYC meets 3 times per year in Edmonton.  Application deadline is:  MARCH 30, 2018.
