High River provides youth with opportunities for connection and involvement through volunteerism. Adults invite youth to participate in decisions that impact them. Youth will have a strong VOICE, a sense of belonging, and empowerment in the community.
High River youth make up approximately 12% of our population and are a vital part of our community.
The High River Youth Advisory Committee is a proud sponsor of the Foothills Literacy for Life Book Bungalows project.
