Nova Scotia Youth Secretariat

The Nova Scotia Youth Secretariat was established in 1989 to facilitate the planning, development and delivery of services and programs for youth; heighten awareness of the needs and aspirations of youth; encourage persons and groups interested in providing voluntary services to youth; consult with youth on matters that affect youth, including legislation, regulations, policy or programs; be responsive to the needs and concerns of youth by seeking feedback and advice regarding the improvement of youth programs and services from persons and groups interested in providing voluntary services to youth, by reviewing existing programs and services and by making recommendations as to how those programs and services may be made more responsive to the needs and aspirations of youth; and maintain a high profile by publicizing programs and initiating a dialogue between youth and the Government. It also assists the work of the Youth Advisory Council, a ministerial board which reports to the minister responsible for the Youth Secretariat Act.
