Alex Mendes (Youth)
I'm entering into my 11th year of Scouting with the 1st West Vancouver Group. Over the course of my Scouting career, I've taken on the roles of: Assistant Patrol Leader, Patrol Leader and finally Senior Patrol Leader, achieving my Cheif Scouts Award in 2019. I have grown through the many opportunities presented in Scouts, always trying to step up to the plate as a leader. As Council Youth Commissioner I hope to inspire more youth to be their best throughout the council.
Outside of Scouting, I enjoy my academic pursuits and am a member of other volunteer organizations such as: West Vancouver Youth Philanthropy Council, the Sea-to-Sky Constituency Youth Council and my local Electoral District Association.
As the Council Youth Commissioner, I spend a lot of time interacting with youth of all ages from all across the council. Because of this hands on experience, I feel I have an in depth and personal connection to the passions of youth. I hope to turn their Scouting dreams into a reality through leadership opportunities and support that I can help provide as Council Youth Commissioner. As a voting member I hope to be a voice of unison for these aspirations and ambitions seen all throughout the Council.
