Join the Seattle Youth Commission

Applications for the Seattle Youth Commission are now online at http://seattle.gov/syc! The Youth Commission gives Seattle residents aged 13-19 a voice in local government, and it’s staffed by Sol Villarreal from the Mayor’s Office; applications are being accepted through May 4 for the 2011-2012 year, which starts in June. If you know any outstanding teenagers who want to help ensure that youth are represented in City government, please talk to them about applying or call or email Sol for more information at 206-233-2656 or sol.villarreal@seattle.gov. Young people with strong ties to existing youth organizations are especially encouraged to apply.
