Youth CORE is the advisory group for youth in the care of the Children’s Aid Society of Haldimand and Norfolk. Members are age 14 and up. They meet every three weeks in the Youth Room which they decorated at the CAS office in Townsend. LIFT staff are present at Youth CORE meetings to provide input and assistance as requested however, the focus is on youth driven planning and initiatives. Youth CORE members plan and host fund raising events, provide input into Youth in Motion* initiatives and are involved in youth activities sponsored by the Ontario Association of Children’s Aid Societies.

Youth Advisory Committee

This Advisory Committee to the Board of Directors was formed in 2011 consisting of up to 3 members of Youth Core who attend Board meetings as observers and non-voting members. Goals of this committee are to provide feedback to the Board for their consideration in governing the Society, and to provide an educational opportunity for the youth to learn about Board governance and to orient them as potential future members of a Board of Directors.
