Since 2003, Stratford District Youth Council (SDYC) has been championing local youth voices and running awesome youth events. As a team of diverse youth aged 12 to 24 years old who live, work and/or go to school in the Stratford district, SDYC meets on the first and third Tuesday of every month to have input into Council activities, build leadership skills and plan future activities that benefit our local youth.
Youth Council contributes directly to the Stratford District Council’s community outcomes by:
- advocating for young people in the community;
- supporting initiatives of groups working with young people;
- providing engaging activities for young people.
The Youth Council is Co-chaired by Alena Hojdelewicz and Keisya Gunawan who are joined by Harmony Hanover, Achim Hanne, Connor Giblin, Brooke Hereora, Ciara Staines-Huley, Emma Steele, Taleesha Kelsen, Taylyn Kelsen and Victoria Payne to make up the full 11 members of the Stratford District Youth Council.
