The T.A.C. is an activity committee, and as such, it is in charge of planning activities and events of interest to the members of the Youth Centre. The members of the T.A.C. act as representatives for all members, their role is to listen to the opinions and ideas of members in relation to the activities that they want to organize at the Center.
The Youth Center’s mandate includes three specific areas to be developed.
- Educational: These include all workshops or events in which a specific theme or idea is introduced and/or discussed. The role of the T.A.C. is to identify what the members’ needs are and workshops/activities that could meet these needs.
- Leisure: Includes all activities and outings involving general group fun such as; organized sports, games, group outings, etc. For these, the role of the T.A.C. is to find out what the members want to do and to help organize these activities. The T.A.C. also has to help plan fundraisers, set objectives and make sure the members know what their financial situation is.
- Community Involvement: This area includes all the activities and events that help increase the involvement of the members in the community (such as our involvement in the Friendship Day Parade), or make what happens at the Youth Center more visible to the community (such as holding an open house). The role of the T.A.C. is to encourage general involvement in these activities and let members know how they can contribute to community life.
The T.A.C. is composed of 5-7 members who are elected by youth members of the Center
