FBC Youth Program
Youth engagement and capacity building is a key component of the Fraser Basin Council's work. Since 2006, the FBC Youth Program has focused on building capacity for youth to engage in sustainability initiatives, deepen understanding on complex issues, gain skills and access opportunities to take on leadership roles to serve their communities. FBC’s vision is for youth and young adults to be able to actively participate and contribute to social, environmental and economic well-being in communities throughout the Fraser Basin and BC.
The Fraser Basin Council also has a Youth Director serve on the Board to reflect youth values and to bring a youth voice to FBC's decision-making processes.
Youth Program initiatives are also informed and shaped by a Youth Advisory Committee, which supports the Youth Director and provides input to the Board on sustainability issues of importance to youth in BC communities.
