Youth Council

The FBC youth council supports the mission and work of the organization by developing ambassadors between the age of 16-29 all across Canada. The youth council ensures that the youth voice is heard, represented, and catered to within alignment of the FBC priority areas.

The Federation of Black Canadians’ Youth Council works along side the FBC to:

  • Ensure the voices of Black Canadian youth are heard
  • Support the FBC in building connections in the Black community across the country
  • Ensure the consistent engagement of youth with the FBC
  • Engage in conversation around issues, opportunities, updates, and planning concerning local and national topics
