Youth Leading Reconciliation
Youth Leading Reconciliation (YLR) enables Clubs to develop initiatives that build the confidence and leadership capabilities of Indigenous youth and help non-Indigenous youth understand our shared history. Through YLR, Clubs also engage in meaningful partnerships and collaborations with Indigenous organizations.
For youth aged 13 - 18
National Youth Council
The BGCC National Youth Council (NYC) is committed to providing representation for Boys and Girls Club youth, reflecting issues and goals from across the country, and ensuring youth input into national initiatives and activities. NYC members serve as ambassadors and role models for other children and youth throughout the organization, positively influence decision-making on issues related to young people, and plan a national youth forum every two years.
Provincial Youth Councils
BGCC’s Provincial Youth Councils (PYC) provide youth with an opportunity to bring their voice, creativity, lived experience and leadership to their Clubs and their youth peers. PYC youth develop their leadership skills, support and help guide youth program development, and bring youth perspectives to BGC governance and public policy.
