Youth Advisory Council to Promote Nutrition

The Alberta Health Services (AHS) School Nutrition Integrated Working Group (led by Nutrition Services) is looking for youth aged 15-19 years (in grades 10, 11, or 12 for 2019-2020 school year) to participate in a Youth Advisory Council (YAC). The YAC will be asked to participate in discussions around planning resources aimed at improving their eating habits. We hope to be able to enhance the quality and relevance of resources targeting youth, and offer youth the opportunity to contribute to the decision-making processes that impact their lives.
