Moose Jaw's Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) has begun planning events for the 2018 school year.

The goal of the committee is to "stimulate and promote youth interest in civic issues and local politics and to serve as a forum for young persons to express opinions about the City. Their objective is to identify things in our community that are valued by youth, including the things that are considered to be assets, strengths and opportunities in our community by young persons."

The committee does just thatl; it gives Moose Jaw youth a voice in the city and can help give the city council insight into what makes some desicions more youth friendly.

The YAC committee has two members from high schools in Moose Jaw. All joined for various reasons, but mainly to make a difference.

"One of my friends sort of talked to us about it and I was interested because it is something that us as a small school I think we can represent our whole school in the community. I think it's just a very good opportunity to make changes," said first year YAC member Joanna Lyn. "That's why I joined."

They have done work in and out of the schools in Moose Jaw, doing more than just youth activities and programs for the community.

"One of the most notable thing we've done, last year, was we got the placard and the flag pole put in at Milne Place," explained Rachel Butt, who's been with YAC for two years now. "William Johnstone Milne was a soldier in World War One and he died at Vimy Ridge, but not before receiving the Victoria Cross for his ingenuity and bravery in battle."

The YAC committee is now focusing their annual garbage sculpture contest that goes on in Moose Jaw schools, and possibly planning an activity day for kids with disabilities.
