The Seattle Youth Commission is a group of fifteen Seattleites aged 13-19 from all over the city that work with local government to address issues that are important to youth.

What We Do
  • DISCUSS issues and solutions with other Seattle youth and develop projects that address those concerns
  • ADVISE the Mayor, City Council and City departments on issues that impact youth in Seattle
  • LEARN from community and City leaders about local efforts underway to address issues of concern and ways that youth can get more involved
Time Commitment
Youth Commissioners serve a two-year term and are expected to attend the half-day retreat, SYC meetings, and other SYC-planned events.  Meetings are held on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays from 4:30-6pm at Seattle City Hall.
