As a member of Weyburn Youth Council, you will take part in City Council meetings, gain an understanding how municipal government works and represent the voice of Weyburn’s youth on a number of important topics.
The Weyburn Youth Council is made up of five Weyburn Comprehensive School students from grades 10-12.
WYC meets once a month and Youth Councillors rotate a seat in City Council meetings every second and fourth Monday of the month, from September to June. Applications are available in July and selected in September each year.
City of Weyburn Council and staff appreciate your interest in this initiative and we look forward to educating the next generation of young leaders on policies and decisions that affect them.
