Before You Apply:
There are about 10 youth on the Youth Council as of now, however six of these members are Seniors this year who will be exiting the Youth Council as they graduate. General responsibilities include: bi-weekly meetings with the Youth Council and City Councilmen, planning and participating in service projects and events throughout the year, constantly brainstorming and working on ways to improve Lake Stevens.
Being a member of the Youth Advisory Council will give you experience in working with the City Council, allow you to learn about local/city government, develop leadership skills, and will give you a voice in your community. Although very rewarding, being on the Youth Council comes with a LOT of responsibilities and time commitments, so please keep that in mind as you are applying.
If the time commitment is an issue for you but you still want to make a difference, enable notifications (through our remind or follow our social media) to know when we are doing community service or projects, and you can come join us. We always could use help from youth, and we love providing opportunities for community service hours!
