RE:                   City of Palatka Youth Ambassador Program


The City of Palatka hereby announces its Youth Ambassador Program. The program is seeking applications from students attending attend Palatka Jr./Sr. High School, Peniel Baptist Academy, Putnam Edge High School, Hillcrest Academy, or Putnam Academy of Arts and Sciences. The deadline to apply for the first session is May 27, 2022. 


The vision of the PYA Program is to encourage active citizenship and community involvement from the public service leaders of tomorrow.


The goal of the PYA Program is to foster open and positive communication between city government and the youth of our community. Students will serve as liaisons and discuss youth-related issues that impact the school and community while learning about municipal government. As such, the Youth Ambassadors will be tasked with developing and implementing education and awareness programs designed to create safer communities. Ideally, the Youth Ambassadors will utilize a variety of methods to focus on topics that affect young people today such as drug and gang education, anti-bullying campaigns, underage drinking and driving, and gun violence. In addition, the students will attend city commission meetings, shadow city departments, volunteer at city events, and assist with community service projects to benefit other organizations.
