Youth Advisory Committee (YAC)
Have a say in what happens at the Okotoks Youth Centre. We are looking for enthusiastic youth to sit on the Advisory Committee. There are opportunities for event and program planning, fundraising and volunteering! We are looking to revamp our logo and start a blog, there is something for everybody.
Are you looking to help out? Come in and volunteer during our weekly scheduled Tween Time for 8 – 11 year olds and/or special events that happen year round. Give back to your community by helping out at the Okotoks Youth Centre!
The Peer Tutoring Program is for junior and senior high students who would benefit from some extra help with a difficult subject. We are looking for senior high students to tutor junior high students in areas where they need additional help. If you are interested in making someone’s school year more successful or to acquire volunteer hours then contact the Okotoks Youth Centre to become a tutor today!
