Youth Get It Community Councils

For youth, by youth.

In 2013, we launched the Young Leaders Community Councils in each of our three trade areas, Metro Vancouver, Fraser Valley and Vancouver Island, with a unique role of making investments decisions for our Community Investment Grants program.

Each Council is comprised of eight emerging young leaders between the ages of 18 and 30. Four representatives are from the local community and four are Coast Capital employees. Through this diverse group of young leaders, we deliver on our for youth, by youth strategy. Community groups who apply know their grant applications are being reviewed by dedicated young people who have a strong understanding of those they’re trying to support. And young leaders gain invaluable experience providing great input and a youth perspective to their investment decisions.

  • Commit to a 1-year volunteer term, January to December
  • Meet as a council up to eight times a year
  • Review grant applications in advance of council meetings
  • Meet as a council to discuss grant applications and make recommendations for allocations of community investment funds
