Apply for the 2019-20 Youth Advisory Commission

March 1, 2019

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.  The online application process is easy. 

2019-20 Application Form

The application deadline is March 31.  The City will begin interviewing applicants in April.  To be eligible for consideration for this 20-plus member group, students must reside in University Park.  They must also be in the 9th, 10th, 11th or 12th grade at the start of the 2019-20 academic year.  

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 community events.  Commission members also act as an advisory group for the City on issues that could directly impact teenagers.

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.
