City leaders need tweens and teens to serve on the Issaquah Youth Advisory Board during the 2012-13 school year.

The panel fosters advocacy, community service and youth representation on local boards and committees.

Students must live within the Issaquah School District boundaries in order to apply for the board. The school district stretches from Preston to Newcastle and from Sammamish to Renton.

Organizers intend to include members representing each middle and high school in the district.

The panel also welcomes home-schooled and private school students living inside district boundaries.

Find the application on the municipal website, www.ci.issaquah.wa.us/Files/2012-2013IYABapplication.pdf. The application deadline is May 18.

Contact city Recreation Coordinator Cathy Jones at 837-3317 or cathyj@ci.issaquah.wa.us to learn more.

The upcoming year represents the 17th anniversary for the Issaquah Youth Advisory Board. Past projects include hosting a daylong Issaquah Youth Summit, collecting more than 1,200 pounds of food for the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank and organizing a middle school dodgeball tournament.
