The Get Engaged program is a collaborative program of the Accelerator YMCA and the City of Seattle, dedicated to cultivating the next generation of leaders and advocating for the influence of young voices in city affairs.
We place one emerging leader aged 18-29 on each of the participating 19 City of Seattle Boards and Commissions for the upcoming September 2017-August 2018 term. The Get Engaged program provides a chance for young people in Seattle to develop skills as an emerging 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 qualified candidates.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about the program or application process.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: May 19, 2017. The online application can be found here: http://getengagedseattle.org/
