The City of Lake Forest invites high school students who are residents of Lake Forest to experience a unique opportunity serving on a City Board. Civic-minded students who will be high school juniors or seniors during 2018-2019 will be appointed by the Mayor in May of 2018 and will work alongside other community adult volunteers. “Involvement in local government will help students develop lifelong leadership and business skills, and the time commitment is minimal,” states City Manager Bob Kiely.
Interested students should complete a Volunteer Profile Sheet, which may be accessed below, at Lake Forest High School or at City Hall, 220 E. Deerpath. To accompany the Profile Sheet, students are required to submit a one-page essay explaining why they would like to serve and what benefits the applicants and the City will derive from the experience. A letter of reference should also be provided.
Students will be interviewed for the seats on the following:
Library Board - responsible for determining operating policies, which are implemented and administered by the Director. The Library Board meets the second Tuesday of the month, 7:30 p.m., at the Library, 360 E. Deerpath.
Parks and Recreation Board - serves as an advisory body on development and operation of recreational programs, the Recreation Center, the Deerpath Golf Course, Forest Park Beach, and all other City-owned parks and recreational facilities. The Board meets the third Tuesday of the month, 6:30 p.m., at the Municipal Services Building, 800 N. Field Drive.
