Kent Police Youth Board

By leading through example, and using these values, we create a comfortable unified environment in our youth board and community.

What do we do?

  • Meet students from other Kent Middle & High Schools
  • Plan and implement the Game of Life Youth Conference - which has over 300 students participate from South King County
  • Create a community based project focused on drug and alcohol prevention - for our Spring 2011 project we created public service announcements that air at Kent Station's AMC theatre and on local Comcast Channels. Check them out here and here!

If you enjoy meeting other teens, working with your community, and would like to be a positive influence to your peers, Kent Police Youth Board is definitely for you. We meet 2-3 Wednesdays per month at the Kent Senior Center from 3:30-5:00, with some other days mixed in!
