West Side Story
STUDENT ADVISORY BOARD
Somewhere, somehow… we’ll find a new way of living.
The Seattle Police Department and The 5th Avenue Theatre are seeking local teens, ages 14-18, to serve on the West Side Story Project Student Advisory Board.
This group of teenagers will take a central role in planning a Youth Summit for local middle students— with the goal of creating a dialogue between youth and law enforcement about youth violence, gangs, and youth-police relationships as well as dialogue between young people about race and social justice.
This is a tuition-free opportunity open to any high school student in King County, ages 14 to 18.
Strong candidates will have a interest in developing leadership skills, and community organizing—as well as an interest in how the arts can be used for social justice.
Student Participants will be responsible for
attending regular Student Advisory Board meeting, 20-30 hours in total
working with mentors from The 5th Avenue Theatre and the Seattle Police Department to identify important topics and themes in West Side Story
collaborating with peers and mentors to create activities and workshop content for Youth Summit participants
