|**NEW** Seattle Youth Commission now accepting applications
The City of Seattle is now accepting applications for the Seattle Youth Commission (SYC), a 15-member commission of kids ages 13-19 that addresses issues of importance to youth. Appointed by the mayor and Seattle City Council, youth serving on this commission work with elected officials, city staff, community leaders, and young people citywide to make positive changes through policy, organizing, and events. The deadline to apply is Monday, June 17, at 5:00 p.m.
Commissioners serve a two-year term beginning in September 2019 and ending June 2021. The commissioners meet biweekly on Wednesdays at Seattle City Hall from 4:30 – 6:00 p.m. and will have additional committee commitments. In addition, the commissioners are required to attend a half-day retreat on Saturday, September 21.
To apply, complete and submit this online application by June 17 at 5 p.m. Interviews for applicants will be held on July 9 and 11 from 4 – 6 p.m.
Seattle Youth Commission Projects
In addition to representing youth across the city, commissioners receive hands-on experience in the public sector and learn how to cultivate the youth voice in city policy. Here is a sampling of the projects the SYC has worked on in the past:
- Researched marketing and recruitment strategies to increase enrollment in Seattle Public Schools’ Career Technical Education Skills Center to recommend to the Office of Economic Development.
- Collaborated with the Mayor’s Chief of Police Search Committee to facilitate a youth forum on selecting the new Chief of Police.
- Advised the Department of Education and Early Learning on top priorities to consider for the Families and Education Levy.

…to make the difference for one child in your school?
Every year in our community, hundreds of kids enter the foster care system. The critical shortage of foster care homes in our school district means that abused and neglected children are rarely able to stay in their original school when they enter foster care. As a result, children who must enter foster care lose not only their families, but also friends, teachers, tutors, counselors, administrators, bus drivers, food service workers and custodians.
For many of these kids, school is the only secure piece of their lives. You could be the best solution!
We are searching for a few families from your school to become licensed foster parents. Just in case a child in your school needs a home. You don’t have to be a superhero, or even save the world, but just maybe you could find the room to make the difference in the life of one child.
Attend orientation now! Get licensed and be ready to help when a student in our community needs a foster family. For information, please call 1-888-KIDS414 (1-888-543-7414).
