Philadelphia Youth Commission Opens Application for New Members
Posted by Mayor's Office of Youth Engagement on July 13, 2021
The Philadelphia Youth Commission (PYC) recently announced that applications are now open for young people ages 12-24 to join the PYC, which is the official youth branch of City government. Created by referendum and added to the Home Rule Charter in 2009, the Youth Commission is appointed by and advises both the Mayor and City Council of Philadelphia on all legislation and policy as it relates to youth.
Composed of 21 members, the Commission, in addition to its legislative responsibilities, also works to bridge the gap between adult policymakers and youth by holding public, youth-centered, and youth-led events on the issues affecting Gen-Z residents.
Applicants to the Commissions must be Philadelphia residents and between 12 and 24 years old. They should be interested in public service and eager to represent their peers at the highest level of Philadelphia government. Young Philadelphians can apply below. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, so apply as early as you can.
