Seeking Steering Committee Members for Participatory Budgeting
Would like to engage Victoria residents in directly shaping how the City invests up to $60,000 in youth projects or events? If so, a great opportunity exists for you!
The City is excited to be piloting Participatory Budgeting (PB), an innovative, democratic process that gives the entire community the opportunity to participate and decide how to invest a portion of the City budget. In 2019, we are targeting youth programs and initiatives in the City of Victoria.
We are now seeking 12 volunteers to serve on the Participatory Budgeting Steering Committee. The Steering Committee will develop and oversee the PB process to engage the Victoria community in allocating up to $60,000 in funding and to ensure that the process is transparent, fair, and inclusive.
This is an ideal opportunity for anyone interested in engaging the community to help decide how best to spend a portion of the City’s budget and see ideas turn into action. Whatever the community votes on, the project or projects will be implemented within 12 months.
To ensure the steering committee is reflective of Victoria residents, we are looking for people of all ages and backgrounds.
Make history and be part of Victoria’s Participatory Budgeting process!
The application deadline is January 11, 2019. If you’re interested in learning more please join us for a “Meet and Greet Information Session” on Wednesday, January 9 from 4:30- 6 p.m. at the Quadra Village Community Centre.
For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope to hear from you soon!
