The Metrocenter YMCA and City of Seattle would like to announce that the online application is currently open for the 2013-2014 Get Engaged program. Started in 2001, Get Engaged is dedicated to cultivating the next generation of leaders and advocating for the influence of young voices in city affairs. We will place one emerging leader aged 18-29 on each of the participating 14 City of Seattle Boards and Commissions for the upcoming September 2013-August 2014 term.
The Get Engaged program provides a chance for young people in Seattle to develop skills as an emerging engaged leader, participate in the public decision-making process, increase youth civic engagement, and help shape policy decisions. Applicants do not need any prior experience serving on boards to be a qualified candidate. Please share the attached flyer and feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about the program or application process.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: May 14, 2013 @ 5pm
