Youth Advisory Council

Supported through funding from the Doc Seaman Amateur Sports Grant, Fast and Female’s first ever Youth Advisory Council (YAC) was established in the Fall of 2021. This permanent advisory committee works alongside the core team to guide initiatives; For the Girls, By the Girls.

The current council is comprised of a total of 16 members with representation from six provinces & two territories. The council meets virtually via zoom, across all Canadian timezones, on the last Tuesday of each month to talk and brainstorm about development and delivery of F&F’s programming. From sport, health and physical activity to life experiences and community specific initiatives, these young leaders all bring their own personal drive to meetings.

In the interest of the YAC’s goal of equal and fair representation of every single province and territory in Canada, the council is still seeking a minimum of 1 representative from the following provinces and territories:

  • Saskatchewan,
  • Nunavut,
  • Quebec,
  • P.E.I. and
  • Newfoundland. 

This volunteer opportunity is open to self-identified girls, ages 15-17 (born between 2004-2006) and is a 1-year term, with the possibility of renewal.

YAC is now also looking to expand Fast & Female’s Youth Network (YN) and will be opening up their upcoming social events to other self-identifying girls ages 14-18.

Interested in getting involved with YAC or the YN? Have ideas on how we can provide better programming to youth?
