The Youth Council is always accepting new members from all of the schools across Orillia to help represent their school, help with the Council’s projects or scale their own projects.
Our Mission: Strengthen leadership and environmental activism from youth to build rewarding and healthy lives for us, the future citizens of Orillia and the world.
Our Vision: Youth are taking the lead on environmental action for their future. Youth receive a quality education on climate change and sustainability. They understand the urgency needed but look to the future with positivity. With this, sustainability becomes more than a box on a checklist, it becomes a lens through which everyone in the world sees.
