The Goodyear Youth Commission provides students the opportunity to develop leadership skills through involvement in city government, and creates a format for students to express their voices on a variety of youth-related issues such as youth programming, recreation opportunities and special events.

To be considered for appointment, students must submit a formal application telling what organizations and groups they belong to, extracurricular activities, current or past offices held, awards and significant accomplishments. They also must share their strong points, how their membership on the commission will benefit Goodyear, something they’ve accomplished and what project they would like to help implement if selected to serve on the commission.

The council also reappointed Wade Foster to the city’s Self-Insured Healthcare Trust board. His term will run through July 10, 2023.

The five-member board comprised of four citizens and the city’s finance director manages and administers a trust fund established for direct payment of healthcare benefits for the city’s self-funded benefit plans.
