Seattle Youth Commission

Seattle Youth Commission logoThis Commission is looking for new members.

From the City:

The Seattle Youth Commission is a group of 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.

What We Do
  • We discuss issues with youth across the city by hosting Youth Community Meetings.
  • We work with local elected officials from the City, school district and other municipal bodies to address issues that are important to youth.
Time Commitment
  • Attendance of two monthly meetings for one year. 
  • Attendance of other meetings, events and trainings as needed.
The deadline for Seattle youth ages 13-19 to apply to be on the Seattle Youth Commission is THIS Friday the 23rd at 5pm.  If you know interested youth that have not gotten their apps in yet, give them a buzz ASAP.  I have been asked by a few people WHEN SYC meetings will be this year. Meetings will fall on two Wednesdays a month from 4pm to 5:30pm.

Highly recommend this group. If your kid is interested in how the city works and is concerned about city issues affecting high schoolers, it is great group to get your voice heard. It also looks good on the resume for college applications. My son was involved with this group and it really sparked his interest in local politics.
