National Youth Advisory Committee

Royal Canadian Mounted Police

The RCMP National Youth Advisory Committee (NYAC) helps shape how the RCMP supports young persons. It brings together up to 100 youth between the ages of 13 and 21 from all over Canada to discuss important issues that they face in their respective communities. The NYAC provides valuable input to RCMP policies, programs and strategies.

How it works
The NYAC is composed of two groups of young Canadian residents (ages 13-17 and 18-21) from a variety of cultures and backgrounds. Members meet on a moderated, private online forum to discuss youth trends, RCMP programs, as well as youth crime and victimization issues. This commitment requires approximately two to four online hours per month, from October to June.

How to apply
