Apply for a spot on the City's Youth Advisory Commission

March 1, 2018

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. 

Here is a link to the 2018-19 application.

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.

The deadline to apply is March 31.  The City will contact all applicants in early April and begin the interview process.  

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 2018-2019 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.
