Snohomish County residents interested in the needs and issues facing children and families are asked to apply for membership on the Snohomish County Children's Commission.
The Snohomish County Children's Commission is a group of 25 members who serve as advisors on issues of health, safety and welfare of children. The commission's mandate is to act in an advocacy role on behalf of children of Snohomish County.
Members, who are recommended by the County Executive and appointed by the County Council, serve a four-year term and represent health and human services, law and justice, education, business and labor, children and youth, parents, minorities, elected officials and concerned citizens.
Commissioners are expected to make a commitment of time and energy, including attendance at monthly meetings, participation in at least one project or committee, and being an active and visible advocate on behalf of children.
Residents interested in becoming a member must first attend three Children's Commission meetings before they can apply.
