An exciting, no-cost opportunity for youth looking to develop leadership skills, make a positive contribution to their community and gain experience planning special events. Committee members attend meetings, plus additional days as needed (must be a current City of Coquitlam Volunteer). For more information, email Lindsay Miller.

Have your voice heard and make a difference! Youth Council members provide feedback, ideas and suggestions on city-wide initiatives, programs and issues facing youth in Coquitlam. Open to students in Grade 10 – 12.
