This year marks the 8th anniversary of the Youth Council at the Pacific National Exhibition which continues to foster strong relationships between youth in the community and the PNE.
Meeting once a month, Youth Council members are given the unique opportunity to learn the behind the scenes workings of a successful business, expand their leadership and teamwork skills and meet with local business leaders. That’s right, members will rub shoulders with COO’s, CFO’s, CMO’s and event CEO’s of local organizations! Not to mention, members get to attend some of the best events in Vancouver!
Do you know any energetic, motivated and dedicated youth who will be going into grade 11 or 12 as of September 2017?

Community and youth are at the heart of the PNE, so for us it made complete sense to develop a PNE Youth Council. The council’s objective is to provide local teens a unique opportunity to learn how a successful business operates and to nurture future business leaders of Vancouver.
Each year we select a group of 12 teens in grades 11 and 12 to join the Youth Council and we provide them key insights into the inner workings, business decisions and operational strategies of the PNE. The group gets access to our top leadership team and also have the chance to work on a major campaign or initiative, like a new ride or attractions launch or a special promotional day. The major takeaway for the students though, beyond having a great time, meeting like minded youth, attending a Vancouver Giants game, Playland, The Fair, and Fright Nights and working on a cool campaign, is that they leave the program gaining business contacts, learning teamwork and leadership skills and they get to provide a voice for the community.
Are you or someone you know interested in joining? We’re currently accepting applications for our 2015/2016 group. For details on the program and to apply Click Here. The application deadline is May 1, 2015.
