Town of Aurora Youth Committee Proposed by Young Aurora Adults

-

Interesting, the Town of Aurora Youth Committee proposed by Aurora young adults. During the last Town of Aurora Council Meeting on March 18, 2014 a group of young adults came forward to Open Forum in the council chambers with the intent to establish an Aurora Youth Advisory Committee. Town staff is going to investigate further; however, it was clearly stated that staff is going to listen to these young adults first. Almost all Councillors and Mayor were in favor of the proposed youth committee.

“Developing youth councils can act as a real means of incorporating young people into our communities and can lead to a more safer, vibrant and sustainable community for all residents.” ~ Advice for Local Councils on Creating a Youth Council, Report

We would also like to promote and get youth involved in Town events as we think it is very important to bridge the gap between the adult community and the youth in Aurora.” Source: Aurora students want say in the decisions impacting them
