Are you age 18-29 and interested in participating in city government?

Consider joining one of our boards and commissions:

  • The Community Involvement Commission works to ensure that City departments are creating and implementing equitable engagement strategies that lead to more relevant and impactful public participation.
  • The Seattle Renters’ Commission provides information, advice, and counsel to the Mayor, Seattle City Council, and departments concerning issues and policies affecting renters.
  • The Landmarks Preservation Board assists the city with identification of potential landmarks, makes decisions on landmark designations, and makes recommendations to the City Council on landmark controls.
  • The Pioneer Square Preservation Board works to preserve, protect and enhance the historic and architectural character of Pioneer Square.

You can apply to join through the YMCA’s Get Engaged program, which places young adults ages 18-29 on City of Seattle’s public boards and commissions. Get Engaged commissioners serve a one-year term starting September each year.

Applications for the 2018-2019 cohort are now available. The deadline to apply is May 31!
