Youth commission applications due Jan. 31

Posted

Applications are being accepted through January for the newly created Apex Youth Commission.

The goal of the Apex Youth Commission is two-fold: to offer volunteer support and service to the district’s programs, special projects and events; and to establish a direct conduit for the district to be more responsive to the needs of the community’s youth and teen population.

“Research tells us that youth in our country are volunteering in increasing numbers,” said Jim Whitfield, president of the Apex Park and Recreation District Board of Directors, which authorized the creation of the commission Jan. 4. “The involvement of this group with Apex events and programs will benefit the entire community in many important ways.”

Not only will youth commission members and the community reap benefits of the commission’s energy and perspective, but the experience will provide skills and assets for a lifetime.

The district is accepting applications through Jan. 31. To be eligible, prospective members must be residents of Apex Park and Recreation District in grades 7-11 who maintain a 2.0 GPA. Youth commission members will serve one-year terms. In this leadership role, they will assist with community endeavors, offer recommendations on positive changes, and share ideas with their peers.

For details and to apply, go to apexprd.org or contact Hillary Roemersberger, recreation services director, at 303-403-2565 or hillaryr@apexprd.org.
