The Seattle Youth Commission Application

is now online at The Commission exists to represent the interests of teenagers directly to local elected officials, and it presents a great opportunity for young people to engage directly with decision-makers on issues that are important to them. In terms of elected officials alone, by the beginning of May the 2010-2011 Commissioners will have met with Seattle’s Mayor, City Attorney, Police Chief, and 6 out of 9 City Councilmembers, as well as the King County Executive; and later in May they’ll be doing presentations directly to the Mayor and the full City Council about their work and their priorities over the course of the year. The Commission is open to Seattle residents between the ages of 13 and 19, and the deadline to apply is May 4th; we’ll be doing interviews on a rolling basis as applications are received, so the sooner someone applies, the better their chances of getting the interview slot that they want.
