CAMBRIDGE- Cambridge MP Bryan May is putting out a call for teens interested in helping set the agenda for the country and their future.

May recently announced the formation of a Cambridge and North Dumfries MP’s Youth Council, which will serve as a youth liaison for the representative in Ottawa, providing input on federal government policies, ideas and initiatives.

 “I’ve worked with young people my entire career, from the YMCA to the Boys and Girls Club, and I know that they have good ideas,” May said in a news release.

“The issues we’re going to look at are critical to get youth input on, and I’m pleased to be bringing those ideas back to Ottawa. I know how engaged youth are on so many issues and I’m excited to start this collaboration.”

The youth council will consist of about 20 youths between the ages of 15 and 19.

Feedback from the council will be consolidated and presented to federal ministers throughout the year to help influence government policy.

Officials at May’s office will be accepting applications until Sept. 30. Anyone interested in taking part can learn more and apply online:  http://bryanmaymp.ca/page/youth
