The Brighton Youth Commission (BYC) is recruiting youth for open spots on the Brighton Youth Commission, Brighton Youth Corps of Volunteers and its youth on city boards.
The BYC also focuses on building youth adult partnerships. In order to accomplish this, there are six adult members serving on the commission. Currently, the commission is also recruiting adult members who live in the city limits of Brighton.
Interested applicants can submit in person applications by Tuesday, June 5, at Historic City Hall, 22 South 4th Avenue, or by email firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications can be found online at www.brightonyouthcommission.org. Interviews will be held later in June.
The Brighton Youth Commission is a body of 20 youth and six adults that are appointed by City Council to study and investigate matters impacting youth in Brighton. The BYC plans and implements projects addressing these important issues. The Brighton Youth Commissioners go through an application process and are selected based on leadership, commitment, and desire to make an impact in their community. They are representatives for the city and their specific schools. The Brighton Youth Commissioners meet twice a month, serve at community events, and host special service projects throughout the year. Commissioners serve a two-year term. Applicants must be in eighth grade - 19 years old and live in Brighton city limits or attend a school district 27J school.
The Brighton Youth Corps of Volunteers is the BYC’s newest extension. The Youth Corps will aim to provide the City of Brighton with a base of committed volunteers that will serve their community. Youth Corps members will be responsible for committing four hours of volunteer service a month. Applicants must be 10-19 years old.
