New Youth Council Will Represent Voice Of Saskatchewan Students

Released on May 16, 2019

Deputy Premier and Education Minister Gordon Wyant has announced plans to form Saskatchewan’s first provincial youth council.

The youth council will provide advice and leadership to the Minister of Education on how to engage youth on a variety of topics.  Those students selected for the youth council will have an important role in defining working principles, the council’s direction moving forward and representing their peers.

“We want to do everything we can to engage students in their education,” Wyant said.  “Collaborating with students on education matters that impact them every day will provide our ministry with valuable insight.”

The 12 members selected for the minister’s youth council will come from every region of the province and bring diverse interests, backgrounds, experiences and perspectives.  Nominations will be sought from school divisions, First Nations and Métis education organizations and directors of independent schools throughout the province.  They will be asked to nominate students entering grades 10, 11 or 12 in the 2019-20 school year who they believe would make a significant contribution serving on the council.

“We have inspirational students across our province who are leaders in their own schools and communities,” Wyant said.  “By engaging students on a provincial level, we can provide supports that better reflect what they need to prepare them for their futures.”

Information packages with further information on the nomination criteria will be distributed to the nominating organizations in the coming weeks.  An initial in-person gathering of the minister’s youth council will be planned in the fall of 2019.
