Become a Student Representative to City Committees!

Posted: 8/22/2023 11:54:31 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  and download an application.  The deadline to apply is September 22.  Possible committees on which you might serve are:

  • Arts Commission
  • CDATV Committee
  • Childcare Commission
  • Library Board
  • Parking Commission
  • Parks & Recreation Commission
  • Pedestrian and Bicycle Advisory Committee
  • Urban Forestry Committee

A frequently asked question 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: and look under the individual board and its agenda, and perhaps even talk to one of the committee liaisons.  Please email Sherrie Badertscher at for more information or to request an application.
