Over the holidays, the Lake Forest Park Youth Council had the opportunity to participate in many of the events that were happening all around the city. Youth Council members could be found passing out cookies and hot chocolate with the Mayor during the Christmas Ships event, volunteering at the North Helpline Food Bank, and making holiday cards for the Edmonds Senior Center.

The Youth Council also participated in the annual Christmas Tree and Storm Debris Recycling event which raised $442.56 for the program, Nurturing Trust.

Through a collaborative effort between the Shoreline and Lake Forest Park Police Departments, they are able to offer free workshops for the community to educate citizens on important issues and how to build a safe community. The intention is to allow Spanish-speaking citizens to feel more comfortable with the police officers and bridge any language barriers.

Currently, the Lake Forest Park Youth Council is still accepting new member applications for the 2017- 2018 school year. Any Lake Forest Park youth from grades 8-12 who are actively involved within the community of Lake Forest Park are highly encouraged to apply.

Meetings are held at the Lake Forest Park City Hall on the second Wednesday of every month. Students are able to earn community service hours though membership and by participating in volunteer opportunities throughout the year.

For more information contact Cory Roche, the Community Volunteer Coordinator, 206-368-5440.
