Chatham-Kent to the Power of Young People (aged 15-39) Advisory Group looking for members
The Municipality of Chatham-Kent’s Resident Attraction and Retention division is looking for members to be part of a newly formed, Chatham-Kent to the Power of Young People (aged 15-39) – CKy Advisory Group.
The CKy Advisory Group is being created as a response to feedback from the 2017 CKy survey that revealed only 22% of young people feel their contributions to Chatham-Kent are valued.
The CKy Advisory Group will facilitate discussion amongst young people and provide feedback to Municipal Council on matters that impact the attraction, retention, and engagement of young people locally in order to help make young people’s voices heard.
Community Attraction and Promotion manager Audrey Ansell says, “this is an important initiative to support CK Plan 2035, to make Chatham-Kent a welcoming community and an attractive place for many different groups to call home, especially as we plan for future generations and work to future-proof our community.”
This is a unique opportunity for young people to engage in matters that concern them by putting them in a position to help solve community issues with other decision-makers.
The Advisory Group will consist of 12 members, aged 15-39, who work, live, or study in Chatham-Kent. Efforts will be made to gain membership that is reflective of Chatham-Kent’s population in terms of race, ethnicity, religion, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, ability, and economic status, as well as represent diverse areas of knowledge, expertise, and interest. Members will also represent the geography of Chatham-Kent.
To apply, visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CKyAdvisoryGroup by August 24th, at 4:30 p.m. If you would like a hard copy of the application, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 519-360-1998 to request one.
