The provincial government is inviting students from all diverse backgrounds and all corners of the province to have a seat on the Minister of Educations Student Advisory Council.
Education Minister Cliff Cullen says the Council will enable youth to discuss and provide input on aspects of the education system and how they affect the children and young people who experience it today, create a network of students across Manitoba and provide feedback on department initiatives and work collaboratively with fellow council members.
The Council will be made up of up to 20 Manitoba youth aged 14 to 18 and will report directly to the Minister of Education. Council members will serve a 12 month term starting in August. In addition to meeting with the minister they will meet with government staff and education stakeholders.
