The Garage, A Teen Cafe is recruiting Issaquah School District area high school students for the Teens 4 Teens student advisory committee.
Teens 4 Teens will help develop the environment and possible programming for The Garage, which opened at its location at 235 First Ave. SE in downtown Issaquah on Sept. 25.
The deadline for applications is Friday, Oct. 19. Applicant interviews will be scheduled for the week of Oct. 22.
The Garage mission is to establish a safe place for teens to connect socially with peers and community resources, under adult supervision. Programming and activities are developed by teens themselves.
Applicants should be 13 to 18 years old and attend Issaquah School District high schools (Skyline, Issaquah, Liberty, Gibson-Ek). Private school and home-school students who live within the Issaquah School District boundaries also can apply.
To apply, students can complete an application online at www.issaquahteencafe.org/news, and send it to Garage director KayLee Jaech via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A list of current Teens 4 Teens members is on the website. The Garage is seeking four or five new members.
The Garage works with Friends of Youth as their fiscal sponsor, and with the City of Issaquah as the building owner.
