Vancouver, Wash. - Clark County Youth Commission is recruiting youths from all walks of life to fill 10 positions for the 2017-2018 program year.

The commission is a group of 30 people ages 11-19 which serves as a voice for Clark County youth. It advises the Clark County Council, county departments and community organizations about how their work can affect young people. It identifies and takes action on youth concerns, educates the community about building strong youth-adult partnerships, and provides leadership opportunities for youth.

Positions to be filled include one from each school district in Camas, Evergreen, Washougal and Woodland. Woodland applicants must live in the section of the city within Clark County. Vacant positions also include at large positions, which represent any part of Clark County, and new leader positions for youths with no leadership experience.

Members serve a one-year term, but can recommit to serve multiple terms. The Youth Commission requires four to 12 hours of work each month. Meetings are 6:45-8:45 p.m. the first and third Thursdays of each month except July and August. Special projects, assignments and subcommittee work add another two to eight hours per month.

The Youth Commission is recruiting new members until June 14, 2017. Please find the application at www.clark.wa.gov/community-services/youth-commission. Finalists must participate in an interview. If selected, they must be available to attend a mandatory orientation Aug. 22-24, 2017.

Youth commissioners work together on various projects and assignments, voicing ideas and contributing their skills and strengths. The commission is continuously striving to be more representative of the county's diversity.
