Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) Members

The Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) reviews, advises, and makes recommendations to the YMCA of Greater Toronto’s Board of Directors about issues important to young people living in the GTA. It provides young leaders ages 21–30 with an opportunity to engage in charity governance. Members are committed to the YMCA of Greater Toronto’s values while delivering on its vision and mission.

YAC has three key functions:

  1. Capacity building: Develop the leadership and governance skills of young leaders.
  2. Actionable knowledge: Provide strategic advice to the Board of Directors based on research and insights gathered from the perspectives and lived experiences of young people living in the GTA, whether they have or have not participated in YMCA programs and services.
  3. Y champion: Represent and advocate for the YMCA of Greater Toronto at international, national, provincial, and local forums and community events
