Youth Advisory Council

A Little About YAC

The Saskatoon Community Foundation is looking for youth between the ages of 13 and 19 to participate on our Youth Advisory Council (YAC). The program is intended to teach youth about philanthropy in their community and learn more about various charities in Saskatoon.

By volunteering one (or two) hours per week, YACs will meet to:

  • Learn more about charitable giving
  • Visit local charities
  • Create grant application forms
  • Manage donation requests
  • Plan and host a grant ceremony

Not only will participating on a Youth Advisory Council help students develop leadership skills, they will also gain valuable experience working through a charitable granting process, event planning, social media management and peer networking.

The Saskatoon Community Foundation Youth Advisory Council is ideal for students who are interested in giving back to their community, looking to gain valuable experience in the not-for-profit sector, or who are applying for scholarships and would like to position themselves apart from other applicants.

The Youth Advisory Council is not currently accepting new members. We encourage you to contact us in October 2017 when we will be accepting new members for 2017.
