Golden Youth Opportunities Council (GYOC)
The Council provides an avenue for youth, aged 21 years or younger, and organizations who work on behalf of youth, to be involved in worthwhile projects at a local level that improves the quality of life for youth. The goals and objectives of the GYOC are to work to foster the growth of the YAC Fund, to make granting recommendations to the GDCF for worthwhile youth projects in the Golden area, and to promote awareness and recognition of GYOC and the GDCF in the community. The GYOC grant program is to be consistent with GDCF granting principles and policies, and run parallel to the GDCF granting cycle.
GYOC Mission Statement:
- The Golden Youth Opportunity Council believes in providing resources to involve youth in community culture. We strive to establish team building, equal opportunity and empower young people with a voice in our community.
Efforts to support local youth projects are now centred around the more recently created Golden Youth Advisory Group (YAG), which is not affiliated with the GDCF. Drop by the new Youth Centre to find up what they're up to.
Also, the Rotary Interact Club of Golden BC is becoming very active. Please contact them on Facebook or through a Rotary member to find out more.
