Alberta Education is seeking approximately 40 junior and senior high school students from across Alberta, between the ages of 14 and 19, representing diverse interests, identities, backgrounds, and perspectives, to join next year’s Minister's Youth Council.

Council members will learn about topics related to government and the inner workings of Alberta’s education system. They will have an opportunity to speak directly with the Minister of Education and senior leaders and provide their thoughts and ideas on how to strengthen education for all Alberta students.

Of the 40 council members, they will accept up to eight returning members and at least 32 new members. Participation on the council will provide students the opportunity to make a tangible impact on Alberta’s education system, strengthen their leadership skills, and leave a legacy for future generations. The deadline for submitting student applications is April 30, 2024. For more information, please visit
