The Brighton Youth Commission is now recruiting for open spots on both the Brighton Youth Commission and the Brighton Youth Corps of Volunteers.
The Brighton Youth Commission (BYC) is a body of 20 youth and 6 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 8th grade - 19 years old.
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 11-19 years old.
Interviews will be held for both entities on Tuesday, June 3 at 10 a.m. at the Brighton Recreation Center. All interested applicants should submit an application by May 30 either in person at Historic City Hall, 22 S. 4th Avenue, or by e-mail at email@example.com. Applications can be found online at www.brightonyouthcommission.org. For more information, please call Tawnya Russell at 303-655-2123.
