  • Attend meetings (both face to face or conference call)

  • Read information sent by email or fax and send in your ideas

  • Make sure information goes to the youth you know and make sure the national youth council knows what the youth from your friendship centre and/or PAYC think.

  • Be able to check email regularly, and if you can’t at home, be able to visit your centre at least once per week to use the computer and internet.


Why should i become involved
Why should I become involved?

Travel

by being a part of either the PAYC or AYC you get to travel all over Canada (and maybe other countries) for the work that you will be doing.

Jobs

Volunteering in a position like this can lead to awesome jobs. This experience leads to more jobs and will help in school too.

Friendship

With all the traveling, you get to meet many different kinds of people. Some of them become your friends for life!

Skills

Being involved helps you develop the skills that will help you in the future. Whether it’s with a job, or your family or in your community.
