Brighton Youth Commission launches Commissioner-in-Training Program

byc-in-training-NF

With over half of the Brighton Youth Commission graduating in 2022, preparations are being made to fill those positions with the launch of the Brighton Youth Commissioner-in-Training Program. For the 2021-2022 commission year, the Brighton Youth Commission has 15 graduating seniors whose positions will need to be filled. The Commissioner-in-Training Program was created to help with this transition by training Brighton Youth Corp Members and youth in Brighton to prepare for the Youth Commission. 

In the training program, participants can expect to learn professional skills and leadership opportunities and build lifelong connections. Each participant will be paired with a current youth commissioner to help mentor them through the process.

Though participation in the program does not guarantee a spot on the commission, it will assist in preparation. Interviews may happen as spots open up throughout the year. If no spots open up throughout the year, the participants should expect to interview for a spot on the commission in July of 2022. 

Applicants must be in 8th - 10th grades for the 2021-2022 school year. Applicants must also live within Brighton city limits. To apply, fill out this form. The deadline for applications is Friday, December 31.

Program mentees must attend every Youth Corps meeting the first Wednesday of the month. Mentees must also attend Youth Commission meetings the first Thursday of every month.

For more information or questions, please contact Tawnya Russell, Manager of Youth Services, at trussell@brightonco.gov or 303-655-2123.
