Calling all youth to service and leadership


PHOENIX— The Governor’s Office of Youth, Faith and Family (GOYFF) is searching for 50 inspiring high school age youth from all fifteen counties to join the Governor’s Youth Commission (GYC) 2016 – 2017.  Applications are being accepted through May 27, 2016 by 3 p.m. at BeSeenBeHeard.az.gov.  The GYC members will be announced in late June 2016. 
The GYC provides individuals from diverse backgrounds an opportunity to participate in a nationally recognized leadership program, while serving as ambassadors and as leaders in their respective communities.  High school sophomores, juniors and seniors who love to lead and have a heart to serve others should apply.   The commission was created to elevate the youth voice and to support Governor Doug Ducey’s vision.  The purpose of the GYC is to provide young people the opportunity to engage with other youth through innovative programs, events, and campaigns.

“This is a remarkable opportunity for teens to lead.  Commissioners learn how to serve on a board, participate in committees, plan service projects, gain public speaking skills and build friendships statewide,” stated Debbie Moak, GOYFF director.
