The WRCC Jr. Board is an enthusiastic group and will be focused on youth in our community offering activities and events at the Club.  We are very excited to see what they have in store for us this year.

 

What is WRCC Jr. Board?

The Jr Board was formed in order to reach a young population of community members to engage them in the Board development process, build future leaders and support various events/activities of WRCC.

The mission of WRCC Junior Board is to support the overall mission and activities of WRCC by acting as ambassadors, developing leadership skills, sharing ideas and by engaging other community member ages 11-17 years old in becoming the next generation of Directors.

Members of the Jr. Board will learn how to conduct meetings, be a part of group decision making, develop leadership skills and learn how to implement project ideas.  This is all through the support of the “senior” Board of Directors.

WRCC Jr. Board Commitments

Members of the Jr. Board are asked to commit to a 1 year term with the option to continue involvement.  Be an enthusiastic community advocate. Plan and/or assist at least 2 major events.

The Jr. Board will meet at least once per month on the 1st Wednesday of the month at 6:30 pm.  Additional meetings may be required when planning events.

Interested in contributing to WRCC, but are unsure about the commitment to the Jr. Board?  That is ok, we always count on volunteers for either the planning of events or helping out on the day of events.  You can choose how much time you can/want to commit.

All board meetings are always open to the community, if you would like to just drop in and see what it is all about we encourage you to do so.

Jr. Board Meetings are scheduled during the following times (subject to change)

  • Wednesday, December 5th at 6:30 pm
  • Wednesday, January 9th at 6:30 pm
  • Wednesday, February 6th at 6:30 pm

If you have any questions or would like more information on the Jr. Board, please contact president@whyteridge.ca and/or secretary@whyteridge.ca
