As an alliance, we want to make sure we are meeting the needs of our youth and hearing directly from them is the best way to do that. We value the opinions of youth and want to ensure we are providing an outlet for them to share those. If there are issues or trends the youth identify there will also be the opportunity for YAA to advocate on their behalf. We are very excited about this addition to the YAA repertoire and we believe it has the potential to become our strongest program.
Mission: The YAA Youth Council is a voice for youth seeking change in their communities to come together as leaders and discover ways to eliminate and reduce barriers.
Vision: We want Winnipeg to be a safe, healthy environment where community members are equal and united and have access to the resources they need to thrive.
