Students interested in serving on the York County Youth Commission (YCYC) for the 2020-2021 school year are asked to submit an application packet by Tuesday, March 10. The YCYC is a 15-member, student-led group from across the county whose main purpose is to represent youth-related needs and concerns to the Board of Supervisors and school officials. Members conduct student surveys, sponsor annual Town Hall meetings in the high schools, perform community service, build leadership skills, and more.
Application forms and program details are available at www.ycyc.info. Hard copies of the form can be found in the Parks and Recreation Office (located in Washington Square Shopping Center), York County Public Libraries in Tabb and Yorktown, Griffin-Yeates Center in Williamsburg (on Government Road), and the Williamsburg/James City County Libraries. The application form, short essay, and a letter of recommendation must be received in the Parks and Recreation office by March 10.
