The Clackamas County Cultural Coalition is now accepting applications for students who wish to serve on the coalition. Each year, the coalition will select two students who reside or attend school in Clackamas County to serve a one year position as a member of the coalition. Students have the opportunity to serve with other artists and arts/culture/heritage supporters in Clackamas County, see the inner workings of this important organization, and provide valuable input and perspective as a youth in Clackamas County.

Time commitment: The Coalition meets quarterly. In your one year term, you will have the opportunity to serve on a grant review panel and as an officer. Your willingness to encourage donations to the Oregon Cultural Trust and enthusiasm for the good work of the Coalition will be welcome.

Youth will be paired up with a seasoned member of the Coalition to guide them through their year.

Applications due May 1 each year; your membership starts in June.
