Town of Yucca Valley Youth Commission Applications

Attention Yucca Valley high school and junior high students! Participate in your local government!

The Town of Yucca Valley is currently recruiting to fill seats on its 2012/2013 Youth Commission.  The Youth Commission was established in 1995 to serve as an advisory group to provide recommendations on youth related issues in Yucca Valley.  This youth led advocacy group enhances the quality of life for Yucca Valley teens by advising the Town Council and the public on issues relating to youth policies, programs and opportunities.

The Youth Commission meets in general session once a month on the first Monday at 6:30 p.m. from October through June.  Commission members also participate in a monthly workshop on the third Monday, as needed.  Last year Commissioners assisted with Community Services Department special events, produced two Teen Connectionvideos, held a middle school forum, and designed a Social Host Ordinance brochure to help promote the new law.  Visit the Yucca Valley Youth Commission page on Facebook for information on the past year’s activities.

The deadline for submitting an application is Tuesday, September 4, 2012.  Applications are available at the Yucca Valley Community Services Office, Town Hall and the Hi-Desert Nature Museum during regular business hours.  Applications can also be printed from the Youth Commission page on the Town’s web site at  HYPERLINK “http://www.yucca-valley.org” www.yucca-valley.org.  The application, along with an essay and two reference letters, should be submitted to Town Hall or Community Services Office by the deadline date and will be reviewed by Town staff and the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Commission with recommendations to the Town Council.

Being a Youth Commission member provides a unique opportunity to experience the Town’s government procedures and voice your ideas.  Apply today!!  For more information contact the Community Services Department at (760) 369-7211.
