Youth Advisory Committee

What is Justin Slade Youth Foundation?

The JSYF is a Fort McMurray based organization targeted at youth aged 12-18. Our mission is to empower young people to make better life choices and to express themeselves in a positive way through music, drama, art and sport.

What is the Youth Advisory Committee?

The goal of JSYF’s Youth Advisory Committee is to provide a voice for the youth in Fort McMurray.

The YAC is a volunteer group of youth aged 12-18.  This committee will provide feedback about current and proposed JSYF programs.  We don’t want to tell you what you like – we want you to tell us.


Why JSYF Presents?

The vision for the Youth Advisory Committee is of a youth-led initiative that gives a voice to the needs of youth in our community by helping to build programs that are meaningful and engaging.

The YAC actively encourages youth involvement by giving teens the chance to take part in programs and give recommendations to the JSYF, helping us further our mission of empowering youth through music, drama, art and sport.

Tell Us what you think.

Tell us what you think. By becoming a part of the YAC, you can attend meetings, test our programs, and give us your feedback and suggestions.  We want to hear what you have to say.

The YAC meets regularly and gives you the chance to gain volunteer experiences, meet new people and be heard!
