Apply for Youth Advisory Commission until March 31

March 3, 2017

University Park high school students who are interested in community service and learning about City operations may want to apply for a slot on the City's Youth Advisory Commission.  Application forms will be accepted Until March 31.  The City will begin reviewing applications for this 20-plus member in April.

While learning about local government operations, YAC members help promote the City's ongoing recycling program and other community initiatives.  They also staff various annual events, including the summer fishing derby, the July 4 Fun Run, and tree lighting in Snider Plaza.  Commission members also act as an advisory group for the City on issues that could directly impact teenagers.

To be eligible for consideration, students must reside in University Park and be in the 9th, 10th, 11th or 12th grade at the start of the 2017-2018 academic year.  Each Commission member will be expected to attend all group meetings and actively participate in all designated events.  Community service hour credits are one of the many benefits of serving on the Commission.
