LAC Youth Advisory Council

Do you know a young person who might be interested in the opportunity to help Library and Archives Canada and be paid for it? Perhaps a family member, a young friend or a neighbour might qualify and find the experience a valuable addition to their resume.

The 2022-2023 Youth Advisory Council on Service Transformation

This year’s council will be different. It will consist of 12 students and young professionals aged 16 to 25 coming from all over Canada, who will help us transform our services to the public.

As a YAC member, you would:

  • attend monthly virtual meetings from September 2022 to April 2023;
  • devote up to 14 hours per month to complete assignments, such as:
    • doing research
    • writing text
    • promoting LAC on social media
  • co-develop 1-2 pilot projects with our staff
  • develop recommendations on how we interact with the public through:
    • communications
    • programming
    • services

If we accept your application, you’ll be signing a service contract. We’ll pay you for the work at a fixed monthly rate of $225 once that month’s assignments are complete. The maximum amount you can receive for the duration of the contract is $1,800.
