Become a Commissioner!

Thank you for considering the Youth Commission! Spots are limited and are filled on a rolling basis with qualified candidates.
We are currently accepting applications for the 2018-2019 school year.

To apply:

1. Applicants must be in high school during the upcoming school year to be considered. Rising freshman and rising seniors are welcome to apply, however it is best to apply as a rising sophomore or junior so you already have a feel for high school and can be a commissioner for an entire 2-3 year term.

2. Find your district here. Please only apply for the district you live in and the mayoral position if its open.

District openings for the 2018-2019 school year are as follows: 


3. Apply here.

  • Find the “San Antonio Youth Commission” and click on “see all” next to it.
  • Check one box from each of the districts you’d like to apply for. Please only select the district you live in and/or the Mayoral District. Please only select one spot within the district you are applying for not both (this creates an extra application). For example, if you are applying for District 1 and the Mayoral seat,check one box next to District 1 and check one box next to the Mayoral spot. Please do not check both boxes next to District 1 and both boxes next to the Mayoral spot.
  • Scroll back up to the top of the screen and click on “Apply”.
  • Fill out the application thoroughly and check grammar and spelling.
  • Complete the application and click “submit”.
  • Ensure you see “Your application has been successfully submitted”.
  • For technical help with the application, please call the Office of the City Clerk: 210.207.7253

4. Once your application is complete, promptly fill out this form. This information will go directly to Fatema Basrai to ensure you’ve completed and submitted your application correctly.

5. After you have completed step 4, please call the district which you have applied to and let them know you would like to interview for the SAYC position as soon as possible. Note: The Mayor’s office will not be doing interviews so you do not need to call for an interview for the Mayoral seat.
