Teens sought for Youth Commission
Goodyear, Ariz. (April 3, 2018) – Goodyear teens eager to play a role in their local government are invited to apply for a position with the Youth Commission before May 25.
“These students are the future leaders of our city, and their input on programs and services offered by the city is valued tremendously,” said Mayor Georgia Lord. “It is important for our youth to become engaged now rather than later, and I have great confidence in them.”
Those already in high school or who will be entering it this fall are eligible.
The Goodyear Youth Commission provides a venue for students to develop leadership skills through involvement in city government and creates a format for students to express their voice on a variety of youth-related issues such as youth programming, recreation opportunities, and special events.
In October, Goodyear Youth Commission members participated in an exercise to help design the city’s first recreation campus – slated to open in 2020 near Estrella Parkway and Goodyear Boulevard North.
