Vancouver, WA The Clark County Youth Commission, a group of 30 individuals who serve as a voice for area youth, is seeking 11 representatives to fill its roster. The group communicates with the Clark County Board of Commissioners, county departments and community organizations.

One volunteer is needed in each area including Washougal, Ridgefield, Woodland and/or Green Mountain. In Woodland, representatives must live in Clark County. There are three at-large positions open that youth from any school district in Clark County may apply for. There are also two positions open for individuals with no previous leadership experience.

Youth from all cultures, ethnicities and abilities are strongly encouraged to apply.

Youth Commission members range in age from 11-19. Eighteen members represent middle/high school students from each of the nine Clark County school districts. Twelve of the youth serve as at-large members and participants each serve a one-year term. Those selected to serve must commit to two monthly meetings plus additional subcommittee work amounting to approximately eight hours of work or more per month.

To be considered, candidates must complete an application and interview for the position. The deadline for submission of applications is June 14, 2012.

For more information, please contact Elizabeth Hill, Youth Commission Program Coordinator at (360) 397-2130 ext. 5133 or
