Youth Rep on Richmond School Board

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

Having youth voices on school board, regardless of whichever district it is in the province is the most important initiative all school boards should strive for, as the benefits of having a youth rep are endless, but most importantly is the unique perspective brought on by a youthful view. The position which is slowly being brought up all over the province, and implemented in one school district is a step forward to better engagement with students. Students are eager to have their voices heard, and are tired of the exclusion they feel, and the lack of seriousness adults take when it comes to youth issues. To solve this we must push forward the position of a youth trustee on the board, with the goal of promoting younger representation, increasing participation, and most importantly inspiring students into taking a more active leadership role in their communities.
