Lethbridge, AB – Rachael Harder, the Member of Parliament for Lethbridge, invites youth from the Lethbridge constituency to join her Youth Advisory Board.

Youth, students and young professionals all have ideas on how to make our county a better place. I want to hear from them.” She went on to say, “I invite everyone, who is between the ages of sixteen and twenty-four, who have a heart for making the community stronger, and the desire to share their opinion, to join my youth advisory board.”

Meeting four to six times a year, this select group of eight participants will engage directly with their Member of Parliament in open discussion on the most important issues facing Lethbridge & the nation.
