The Airdrie Board of Youth Affairs (ABYA) was first formed in 2005 with the goal to empower youth in Airdrie to deal with issues that affect them. In 2013, members began the process of rebuilding and redefining the goals and structure of the group, leading to the current incarnation of the Youth Council.

Mission: To educate and empower the youth community by providing advice to City departments and City Council on issues that affect youth, and through partnerships with other youth-focused groups, agencies and organizations.
