Join the St. Paul Youth Commission

2012-13 St. Paul Youth Commission

The Saint Paul Youth Commission is currently accepting applications for the 2013-2014 school year.

SPYC Application due June 28th, 2013

The Saint Paul Youth Commission is the place for young people in Saint Paul to have a voice at City Hall.  This group of twenty-two 9th-12th graders tackles community issues -- everything from opening the city’s only arts-based teen center to advocating for public transportation/city buses to be more affordable, to advising Sprockets on programs, marketing and social media -- that help create a better Saint Paul for youth.

Involvement Includes:

  • Leading community projects that matter to you; tackling serious issues by designing creative solutions.
  • Ensure the views of youth are heard by city officials, state legislators and the community at large and play a key decision making role.
  • Strengthen your leadership skills, expand your network, and build your power!

 Membership details:

  • Youth Commissioners must be enrolled in 9th, 10th, 11th or 12th grade during the 2013-2014 school year and reside in Saint Paul.
  • The Youth Commission meets every Monday night and needs members who can regularly attend and actively participate.
  • Most meetings will take place at the Central Library in Downtown Saint Paul. Each Youth Commissioner receives an unlimited bus pass to get to and from meetings.
