Youth Advisory Committee

The 4-H Canada Youth Advisory Committee (YAC), is the national youth voice for 4-H Canada. YAC provides leadership opportunities for outstanding young people from across the country who have been involved in 4-H and want to continue to play a role and contribute to the 4-H movement in Canada. 

Made up of 12 4-H’ers from across the country, our YAC members help drive  the policy and decisions of 4-H Canada by  meeting as a committee on a regular basis, making recommendations to 4-H Canada regarding programming, policy development, marketing and communications and representing 4-H Canada at events and conferences.

Each YAC member actively participates in selected working groups to assist 4-H Canada staff in the planning and facilitation of national conferences, act in an advisory capacity to 4-H Canada staff on the development of youth-friendly programs, resources, digital communications and more. Working groups available to YAC members include:

  • Two representatives on Board of Directors (non-voting)
  • Marketing & Communications Working Group
  • Board Representatives and Admissions Working Group
  • 4-H Canada Conferences Working Group
  • Program & Policy Working Group

YAC member terms last two years with the possibility of renewal for an additional one or two year term.
