The Youth Advisory Council (YAC) is a fun and structured way for youth to share their opinions and perspectives on our programming, policies, and strategic direction. Our Council members will also be able to participate in workshops about food systems and leadership, and will work together to build on self-selected skills. 

The primary purpose of the YAC is to advise on our Youth in Food Systems (YFS) programming and elevate youth voices within our projects. Prioritizing the contributions of the YFS primary stakeholder group improves the relevancy of our work, and allows for the interests and needs of young people across southern Ontario to be better integrated into program design, execution, and evaluation.

Community Development Halton, Volunteer Halton
Virtual opportunity

Results is an advocacy nonprofit that believes in mobilizing everyday people (our volunteers) to generate the political will to end extreme poverty in low-and middle-income countries. We focus our work on global health, access to quality education and economic opportunities.  
 
We direct our energy and efforts at government decision makers like party leaders, Members of Parliament and senators because they have the power to improve policies and make the monetary investments needed to end extreme poverty. We also raise awareness by writing letters to the editor (LTEs) and op-eds, using social media, fundraising and more.  
 
Oftentimes the first step is putting these issues on the radar — and keeping the pressure on. It might seem like a small step, but it all adds up into impact.  
 
commitment: 1 year minimum, 1-2 hours per week on average  
 
support structure: Volunteers (virtually) meet in local groups on a monthly basis and rely on their group leader(s) for guidance. Attending other virtual calls and webinars led by Results staff is recommended.  
 
If you’re ready to learn about advocacy, causes and solutions to extreme poverty and committed to taking action every month, join us! *** To volunteer: sign up here: https://resultscanada.ca/join-us/
