2014-15 Multnomah Youth Commission: Application Now Available

Applications Due April 28, 2014

Multnomah County's Office of Diversity and Equity and the City of Portland's Office of Neighborhood Involvement are happy to announce recruitment for the 2014-15 Multnomah Youth Commission.  Please encourage any young person you know who will be between the ages of 13-21 (on August 1, 2014) to apply by April 28, 2014.

Youth Commissioners serve a one-year term and commit up to 15 hours per month to help advise the County & City on issues that impact the lives of their peers.  Youth Commissioners are also in charge of implementing "Our Bill of Rights: Children + Youth," the nation's first Bill of Rights written by and for young people.  The Youth Commission gets things done!  One young person said it this way,

“I can honestly say I have never seen a group so action-driven. I've seen talk-driven, but never action-driven...The group makes me want to do more. Really! It makes me want to get out into the world, get my hands dirty, and make a difference!" -Ameneh Yasrebi, Former MYC member

Youth interested in policy, activism, community organizing, or making the community better can apply to be Youth Commissioners.  Attached is our application and here is the link to our online application:
