Applicants sought for Seattle Youth Commission

Mayor Mike McGinn and the Seattle City Council are looking for applicants aged 13-19 interested in helping to represent the voices of the city's youth to elected officials.

The Youth Commission provides young people with the opportunity to participate meaningfully in local government and ensure that their interests are represented, and it also provides the City's elected officials with the opportunity to work with and receive input from teenagers throughout the year. Serving on the Youth Commission represents a one-year commitment, from June of 2013 to June of 2014.

If you are a Seattle resident between the ages of 13 and 19 and you are interested in applying to or want more information about the Seattle Youth Commission, please contact Sol Villarreal in the Mayor's Office at 206-427-3062 or

To be considered, please visit the Youth Commission's website at and submit your application by May 10, 2013.
