The Redmond Youth Partnership Advisory Committee (RYPAC) is looking for junior high and high school teens who want to be the voice of teens in Redmond. We are looking for students who want to give back to the community and have fun doing it!
This past year RYPAC had over 130 students involved and completed over 1300 hours of community service.
"RYPAC is such a wonderful opportunity that Redmond is very fortunate to have!"states Michelle Solomon, past Youth Chair. "Teens have so much power being a part of this organization that’s purpose is to benefit the community and give back creatively through homeless feeds, park cleanups, charity dances and anything else YOU want to see. I encourage anyone and everyone to join this amazing organization because in all seriousness, it has changed my life."
Current RYPAC Youth Chair continues, “Engaging in RYPAC is dually constructive: you are given the opportunity to help others in the community while simultaneously receiving an inevitable morale boost.”
Come and be a part of the change! RYPAC meets the first and third Thursdays of the month from 6:30pm until around 8:30pm at the Old Redmond School House Community Center, 16600 NE 80th Street.More information: firstname.lastname@example.org or call Nancy Chang at 425-556-2358
