TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Governor Doug Ducey is searching for the next group of young adults to join the Governor’s Youth Commission.

According to a news release, high school students from across Arizona are brought together through the GYC to identify and address the greatest challenges facing Arizona’s youth by developing innovative community impact projects, establishing partnerships with young leaders across the state, and advising the Governor.

The GYC has five workgroups that focus on the following issues: distracted driving, domestic violence, education mental health, and substance abuse.

The 40-50 commissioners are selected through a competitive application process. According to the GYC website, officials say they generally accept two members from each county outside of Maricopa County (and the rest from Maricopa County.)

Applicants must be sophomore, junior, or senior students during the 2021-2022 school year.

Applications are currently being accepted until May 7, at 5:00 PM from Arizona youth in all fifteen counties.
