The Whitpain Township Board of Supervisors is instituting a program to appoint high school students to serve as non-voting members on various boards and commissions, including the Board of Supervisors, Planning Commission, Park & Open Space Board, Shade Tree Commission, Human Relations Commission, and Environmental Advisory Council. A brief description of each board and commission has been included in this packet; however, you can find a more detailed explanation by clicking here. Most boards and commissions meet once each month except for the Board of Supervisors which meets twice per month. Whitpain Township believes that it is important to include a student’s perspective into recommendations made by the boards and commissions, and at the same time, we think it would offer an excellent learning experience for the students. Attendance at meetings can be in person or virtual via Zoom.
It is the goal of the Board of Supervisors to appoint students who live in Whitpain Township; however, students from other municipalities may be considered if there are insufficient applications from residents. We ask that all applications, recommendation letters, and supplemental materials be submitted to Roman Pronczak, Township Manager via email at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than October 1, 2022.
