Youth

The District adopted a Youth Strategy in late 2019 in collaboration and consultation with Squamish youth and partner agencies. 

The key value of "Speak Up and Leadership" was identified and as such, the Squamish Youth Council is being created to give Youth the opportunity to engage with the Mayor, District of Squamish Council and Community Leaders. 

The goals of the Squamish Youth Council are:

  • To amplify the voice of Squamish youth in matters and projects that directly impact them;
  • To create a series of youth-led projects that directly support the Squamish Youth Strategy;
  • To plant the seeds of civic engagement mindset and skillset in Squamish Youth;
  • To create a legacy that gives Squamish youth a seat at the decision-making table for years to come.

    I am very interested in having a voice as a youth in Squamish, getting involved, learning and hearing others, and helping spread the voice and opinions of people my age!

    Where? I see no address where this Center is going to be.So many wonderful programs being organized for Youth...
    When is the District going to recognize that there is a Senior population in Squamish that needs the same attention the Youth are getting. Don’t sideline we Seniors!!
