Youth Council

Students are the centre of Saskatchewan's education system and their voices play an important role in shaping it. The mandate of the 2021-22 Youth Council is to provide advice and insights on education policies, curriculum, programs and priorities.

Youth Council members will have an important role in providing the Minister of Education advice and insights that contribute to the delivery of education in Saskatchewan.

"The Youth Council is a great way to empower Saskatchewan's youth to get involved in their schools and communities. This year's members represent a diverse group of students from all across our beautiful province. I look forward to hearing directly from them and incorporating their feedback into our education system."

- Dustin Duncan, Minister of Education

The Ministry of Education is happy to recognize April 24 to 30 as National Volunteer Week. All members of the Saskatchewan Youth Council are avid volunteers within their communities. 

"Volunteering is an act of kindness that spreads happiness and an act that I interpret as a duty as the future of our generation. Helping out my community is a way for me to inspire other youth to follow my lead and contribute to the community because together, we can make a change. Following the pandemic, I founded Stargivers Initiative, a nonprofit organization to help the homeless community fight through COVID-19 through monthly donations of essential kits including masks, hand sanitizers, and more to homeless shelters, community fridges, and the food bank."

- Sung Park, 2021-22 Youth Council Member

Youth Council Member Sung giving thumbs up


“Volunteering means being involved and making a difference in my community. Establishing a local KidSport Chapter in my community helped make the benefits of sport - that have been so important to my life - more accessible for kids in my area. This means I can help others access activities that build friendships and strengthen mental health.”

– Kaia Thauberger, 2021-22 Youth Council Member

“Volunteering is one of the most rewarding things I do with my time. You create a bond with the community you devote your time to because money is not the main goal in mind. This year I helped coach a 13U girls club volleyball team and it was some of the most fun I've had in a long time.”

– Grace Edwards, 2021-22 Youth Council Member
