Prairie Post (East Edition) - - Al­berta - CON­TRIB­UTED

Glen Motz, Mem­ber of Par­lia­ment for Medicine Hat-Card­ston-Warner, is once again hold­ing a non-par­ti­san Youth Ad­vi­sory Board.

This is an op­por­tu­nity for young peo­ple from the rid­ing to con­trib­ute ideas, sug­ges­tions, and pro­vide feed­back on top­ics within their com­mu­ni­ties that are important to them as well as is­sues be­ing dis­cussed on Par­lia­ment Hill.

The Medicine Hat-Card­ston-Warner (MHCW) Youth Ad­vi­sory Board will con­sist of youth ages 16-24 from the rid­ing who are pas­sion­ate about hav­ing a voice and be­com­ing a leader in their com­mu­nity.

Youth se­lected to sit on the MHCW Youth Ad­vi­sory Board will start in Oc­to­ber 2018 and serve un­til the sum­mer of 2019, and those who suc­cess­fully com­plete this ini­tia­tive will re­ceive a let­ter of rec­om­men­da­tion.

“I be­lieve that ev­ery voice mat­ters and that’s why I want to give our youth a seat at the ta­ble,” Motz said. “As your Mem­ber of Par­lia­ment, I want to hear from our young peo­ple about what mat­ters most to them and en­cour­age them to be­come em­pow­ered lead­ers in their com­mu­ni­ties.”

This is a non-par­ti­san op­por­tu­nity and youth of all po­lit­i­cal back­grounds are en­cour­aged to ap­ply. The on-line ap­pli­ca­tion can be found at www.glen­ and is due by Oc­to­ber 3.
