Become a Student Representative to City Committees!

Posted: 8/30/2019 11:56:18 AM

The City of Coeur d’Alene is seeking youth representation on City Commissions, Boards, and Committees.  Service on these boards gives high school students between the ages of 14 - 18 an unprecedented opportunity to learn about city government, special projects, and to become involved in the community.

If you are interested in serving as a student representative on any of the following committees, or know of a student who might be interested, please visit www.cdaid.org/volunteer  and download an application.  The deadline to apply is September 30.  Possible committees on which you might serve are:

  • Childcare Commission
  • CDATV Committee
  • Parking Commission
  • Ped/Bike Committee
  • Urban Forestry Committee
  • Parks & Recreation Commission
  • Library Board
  • Arts Commission

A question that gets asked a lot is:  What is the time commitment for a student representative?  It depends on the board/commission/committee, but for the most part, city boards meet once a month, for not much longer than an hour or two.

To find out more about an individual board/commission/committee, visit the city’s website: www.cdaid.org and look under the individual board and its agenda, and perhaps even talk to one of the committee liaisons.  Please email Amy Ferguson at amyf@cdaid.org for more information or to request an application.
