​Youth and Education Advisory Panel – Your Opinion Counts

Metro Vancouver invites youth and educators from across the region to apply to participate in a newly formed Youth and Education Advisory Panel.

Metro Vancouver’s Youth and Education Advisory Panel will provide input, advice, and ideas to take into consideration as we plan for the region’s future. This panel will support Metro Vancouver to engage, educate, involve, and empower youth in the region. The panel will meet four times per year. Meetings will be held on weekdays, outside of school hours. In-person meetings will be held at Metro Vancouver’s head office (4515 Central Boulevard, Burnaby). Virtual meetings will be held via a web-conference platform.

Youth and Education Advisory Panel Membership:

This panel will include high school students, post-secondary students, and K-12 education professionals who will provide valuable input to Metro Vancouver, helping shape programs, projects, and policies. This group will include:
