The Guelph Youth Council is a group of local youth volunteers (ages 13 – 18) that strive to preserve and enhance the youth culture within our community. To accomplish this, we liaise with City Council, plan and implement various special events and activities, engage in leadership training and development, and advocate on behalf of youth in our city.
The Guelph Youth Council meets on a weekly basis at City Hall downtown, from the beginning of September until the end of June. Sub-Committees may require additional meetings throughout the year, depending on project development. For a more detailed overview of the Guelph Youth Council (structure, etc), please view the Terms of Reference.
