Hear how you can become a ‘Get Engaged’ member and serve on a city board or commission.
The Get Engaged program places young adults ages 18-29 on the City of Seattle’s public boards and commissions. Get Engaged commissioners serve a one-year term starting September each year. Acting in an advisory capacity to the Mayor and City Council, commissioners help shape policy decisions, make recommendations, and provide citizen participation in city government. Started in 2001, Get Engaged is dedicated to cultivating the next generation of leaders and advocating for the influence of young voices in city affairs.
They are hosting several informational sessions starting Monday, April 4th in Ballard. Past & current Get Engaged members will be speaking about their experiences with the program, following a Q&A portion. Please RSVP if you are able to attend.
