Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) Members

The Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) reviews, advises and makes recommendations to the YMCA of Greater Toronto’s Board of Directors about issues of importance to young people living in the GTA. It provides young leaders ages 21–30 an opportunity to engage in the governance of a charity. Members are committed to the values of the YMCA of Greater Toronto while delivering on its vision and mission.

The Youth Advisory Committee has four key functions:

  1. Develop the leadership and governance skills of young leaders
  2. Gather research and insights on the needs/wants/experiences of young people in the GTA, acting as advocates as the charity continues to serve as many young people as possible in the best possible way
  3. Provide strategic advice to the board of directors based on research or insights gathered and from the perspective and lived experience of young people living in the GTA, whether they have or have not participated in YMCA programs and services
  4. Represent and advocate for the YMCA of Greater Toronto at international, national, provincial, and local forums as well as community events
