As you may or may not know, I am one of the Staff Liaisons for the City of Carrollton Youth Task Force (YTF). The YTF is made up of teens from across the city. This group acts as the voice for Carrollton teens to staff as well as the City Council. It is an excellent opportunity to learn more about how the City works and to work with teens from different schools. Here are more details on the YTF: http://www.cityofcarrollton.com/index.aspx?page=880.
We are currently seeking new members. Members are in grades 6 through 12 and usually remain on the task force until graduation. The YTF meets on the first Monday of EVERY month at 6:30p.m., usually at the Josey Ranch Lake Library.
I hope that you will consider applying. Here is the application: http://www.cityofcarrollton.com/Modules/ShowDocument.aspx?documentid=6074 (PDF). Applications can be submitted to me, Jennie Evans, at either library by Tuesday, August 31st. Current members will be reviewing applications and scheduling interviews for the following week (September 8).
