The Campbellford/Seymour Youth Advisory Council (YAC) was formed in 2003. The YAC was created in an attempt to bring youthful energy and ideas to the Campbellford/ Seymour community. In turn, the YAC provides local youth with a voice and a forum.
The impact of the YAC is far-reaching:
The CSCF YAC operate as a Campbellford District High School youth committee and a new council is formed at the beginning of each school year. With the support of an adult advisor from the CSCF Board, and a teacher advisor from the High School, YAC`s initiate youth driven ideas and serve as active resources and leaders in their school and their community.
On June 30, 2005 the Youth Advisory Council, in partnership with Westben and CDHS Jazz Ensemble, launched its new logo. The logo was designed by Kayla Vieth, a local youth and member of YAC who won a design contest.
Other Youth Advisory Council activities have included:
The “We Day” Conference
Halloween for Hunger
Campbellford Children’s Wish Campaign (Toy Drive)
Easter Egg Hunt at Kennedy Park
Earth Day Clean Up
