LEAD is designed to build self-confidence, create positive life skills and develop a sense of responsibility to the community. This is done through fun team building games and activities. LEAD members will take on planning and implementing a BC Youth Week event during the first week of May. LEAD is a stepping stone into our Youth Council group. This program is for youth in grades 9 – 11.

LEAD members will expect to learn:

  • Leadership skills
  • Team building skills
  • Communication
  • How to plan, prepare and run a special event


  • Meet youth with similar interests
  • Build new skills
  • Participate in your community
  • Earn volunteer hours
  • Opportunity to use the AYC as a reference
  • Group meetings once a month
  • Potential for more volunteer hours assisting with fundraising events through the AYC as well as other community events
