Gwinnett County is recruiting high school students for the Gwinnett Youth Commission, a program to develop youth leaders to speak on behalf of their peers, help County government leaders better understand youth issues, plan community events, and participate in volunteer projects. The commission consists of an eight-week training session and a graduation, at which participants are sworn-in as youth commissioners.
To be eligible for the commission, students must be a resident of Gwinnett County, be a rising sophomore, junior, or senior at a Gwinnett high school, and submit a completed application and a typed essay by April 12. Classes will be in person but limited to 15 participants and masks will be required. For more information about the program, visit the Gwinnett Youth Commission webpage.
