Lake Forest Park Youth Council

The Lake Forest Park Youth Council is committed to participating in community and government oriented events that better our city.

This year, Youth Council members were involved in many important events within the community. Members were proud to be a part of the Lake Forest Park Safety Fair in September where they assisted in setting up the room for the event and helped organize the different displays and presenters showcasing safety information.

Many members were able to partake in the Get Up and Go 5k which brought the whole community together.

On Halloween, at the Third Place Commons, members dedicated their evening to help put on a fun event for young kids in the community by running a face painting station for toddlers and passing out candy to trick-or-treaters.

The Youth Council was also busy with internal changes during its own meetings as they updated its bylaws to better ensure that members were contributing fully to the community.

All of the Youth Council members are excited to be working on the addition of a Youth Council specific webpage for the Lake Forest Park government website.

The Youth Council also partook in many outdoor restorations of parks including Lyon Creek Waterfront Reserve and Whispering Willow Park.

Making holiday cards for retirement homes is also a favorite activity for many members.

Volunteering at PoPY’s café this past May involved many members helping with dish duty during the free community dinner for homeless Seattleites.

These are just a few of the many activities and community service projects that the Youth Council participated in this year, we are all very excited to continue our service and keep a youth voice in the city.
