Get Engaged! City seeks young people to serve on its boards and commissions.

The Get Engaged program is recruiting 15 young people aged 18-29 for service on Seattle’s public boards and commissions! Commissioners help shape policy decisions, make recommendations, and provide citizen participation in city government. The 15 boards range in interest areas — from design, to human rights to LGBT: there’s something for everyone.

In addition to service on a public board for one year, participants meet monthly as a cohort for leadership competency training, issue discussions and other activities.

Get Engaged is dedicated to advocating for youth voice in city affairs and to cultivating local leaders, especially those who have had limited opportunities to be involved in civics and community. You don’t need any prior experience serving on boards to be a qualified candidate.

Application deadline is May 14.  Click here for more information.
