Ontario youth, we have two exciting opportunities to tell you about.

Both the Premier’s Council on Youth Opportunities and Minister’s Student Advisory Council are recruiting. These are amazing opportunities that you should not pass up on. We recently helped several students apply for SpeakUp grants and want to offer support to apply for these new opportunities. For more information on these councils, see the Google Form.

Given the deadlines, we are looking to offer a webinar to go over tips for applying.
Fill out the Google Form with dates that work for you. After the webinar, we will provide support to complete out your application. If you cannot make the webinar, we can still provide support, please fill out the Google Doc so we can get in contact.

The Minister’s Student Advisory Council is a group of approximately 60 students ( in grade 7-12) from all parts of the publicly funded education system and regions across the province.
These students share their ideas and provide advice to the minister on a variety of topics regarding Ontario’s publicly-funded education system. MSAC is a place where all students have a voice and where they will be heard.
Applications must be submitted by Wednesday, January 10, 2018 midnight, EST.
