2013-14 Youth Commission Applications due March 6


     The York County Board of Supervisors is currently seeking students who are interested in representing youth interests and concerns by serving on the York County Youth Commission for the 2013-2014 school year. Applicants must be York County residents who are currently enrolled in grades 8-11.
     The Youth Commission serves as a link between the Board and the county's youth by representing youth-related needs and issues. In addition, Commission members typically participate in rewarding community service projects, learn about county government, sponsor county-wide high school social events, and build leadership skills through various team-building activities.
     A completed application form and a letter of recommendation must be received at the York County Parks and Recreation office by 5 p.m., Wednesday, March 6. After reviewing the applications, the Board of Supervisors will appoint up to three teens from each of the county's five voting districts. The new Commission will be formally introduced at a Board of Supervisors' meeting in June.
     Application forms and complete program details are best available by downloading from the York County Youth Commission's website at www.ycyc.info. Hard copy forms are also available at the Yorktown and Tabb libraries, the Williamsburg-James City County libraries, and at the Parks and Recreation office located at 100 County Drive.
     Interested teens and their parents are invited to attend the Monday, February 4 Youth Commission meeting anytime from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Yorktown Library Meeting Room, 8500 George Washington Memorial Highway (Route 17). Those who attend will have the opportunity to observe the meeting and ask questions of this year's commissioners. Applicants are not required to attend this meeting, and attendance will not enhance one's application.
     For more information about the Youth Commission, please call Parks and Recreation at 890-3500.
