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

One volunteer is needed from each of the following cities: Ridgefield, Camas, La Center and Woodland. In Woodland, applicants must live in Clark County.

Another seven, at-large positions are open to youths in all Clark County school districts. Two of the positions are reserved for youths who have no previous leadership experience.

The Youth Commission is seeking members who are representative of the community’s diversity and cultures. Youth from all backgrounds and abilities are encouraged to apply.

Youth Commission members range in age from 11-19. Eighteen members are middle or high school students from the nine Clark County school districts, and 12 youths serve as at-large members.

Each member serves a one-year term. Members meet twice a month and for additional subcommittee work.

To be considered, candidates must complete an application and interview. The application is at www.clark.wa.gov/youth-family/commission.html. Deadline is 5 p.m. Friday, June 7, 2013.
