Openings On The Newton Youth Commission

The Newton Youth Commission is a volunteer body of high school students and adults working together to empower youth. The commission is made up of a group of seven voting members ages 13-19 from all over the city who are appointed by the Mayor with the approval of the Board of Aldermen. Commissioners learn about civic engagement and connect with city officials. The Newton Youth Commission has current openings for young adults interested in getting involved in their community. Please visit www.newtonma.gov/youth for an application or contact the Director of Youth Services at 617-796-1436 or joleary@newtonma.gov.

An Advisory Board to the Youth Commission is also appointed by the Mayor, with the advice of the youth commission. The advisory board is a group of twenty youth and adults selected to represent youth agencies, police, schools, health, recreation and other public or private organizations concerned with youth. Adults interested in applying for the Advisory Board should submit a resume and youth interested in applying should submit an application but specify on the application that they would like to be considered for the Advisory Board. Applications can be found at www.newtonma.gov/youth. Questions? Contact the Director of Youth Services at 617-796-1436 or:  joleary@newtonma.gov.
