Teen Highlights
Apply to be part of the Seattle Youth Commission!
What is the Youth Commision? It is a group of 25 Seattleites aged 13-19 from all over the city who are appointed by the Mayor and City Council to connect youth to their elected officials. They discuss issues with students across the city by hosting Youth Community Meetings , work with local elected officials from the City, County, school district, and other municipal bodies to address issues that are important to youth, and work to get more youth involved in government by engaging with other students in the city and hosting an annual Youth Town Hall with the Mayor and City Council.

This is a great opportunity, especially for those who are interested in wanting to get things done in their communities. This year we are structuring things a little differently splitting the groups by regions in Seattle, Northwest, Northeast, Central-west, Central-east, Southwest and Southeast. The commitment for the once a week during the school year. To apply go to http://www.seattle.gov/seattle-youth-commission/apply priority deadline is July 30th.
