Make Time For Youth Commission

By Devon Van Dyne, University

Get involved

Looking for a way to get involved with real issues that involve teens like you? The Chase Youth Commission is now accepting applications for its Teen Advisory Council for the 1997-98 school year.

The council helps the Youth Commission and the City of Spokane address the concerns of teens. Youth from various schools and groups get the chance to share information and influence what happens in their town.

Among other activities, the council this year planned an Easter egg hunt for little kids, helped plan Kids Week and the Chase Youth Awards, held a book drive for Success by Six and participated in the Tree of Sharing program at Christmas.

Teen Council is one of the few chances teens have to get involved in something that’s ongoing. A lot of opportunities can open up for you if you’re involved.

Council terms are for one year and meetings are held from 7 to 9 p.m. on the second Tuesday of every month at the Libby Teen Center. A special training retreat will kick off the year on Oct. 4.

Teens in grades 9-12 are eligible to apply. Forms are available at the youth department in City Hall, 808 W. Spokane Falls Blvd. Applications must be received by noon Sept. 18. For more information, call 625-6440.
