The city of Goodyear encourages high school students interested in learning more about how their city operates to apply to join the Goodyear Youth Commission.
“I’m extremely proud of this youth program and to be able to give these students, our future leaders, an opportunity to provide their input on city services,” Mayor Georgia Lord said. “It is important for our youth to be engaged with their community.”
The Goodyear Youth Commission provides an opportunity for students to develop leadership skills through involvement in city government and creates a format for students to express their voices on a variety of youth-related issues, such as youth programming, recreation opportunities and special events.
“Being part of the Goodyear Youth Commission has taught me how to serve the community and learn what it means to be a leader,” said Gabriella Burton, 2019-20 Youth Commission chair and Millennium High School student.
The Youth Commission is open to high school students in Goodyear or to students entering high school in fall 2020. Applications are due Friday, May 22.
