The Peterborough Youth Council is a 10 member peer led group that meets monthly to discuss issues and events that are important to them.  Under the umbrella of the Peterborough Youth Commission, Chair Councillor Kemi Akapo, the Youth Council brings to light youth success stories and also some of the concerns youth have regarding their community.

Over the years the Youth Council has contributed to many great initiatives that have had a positive impact on the Peterborough community.

Each volunteer term is for one year and applications are now being accepted for the 2019- 2020 term.
