[ARCHIVED] Las Cruces Parks & Recreation Youth Board is Looking for Members

The City of Las Cruces Parks & Recreation Department has begun its recruitment for the Parks & Recreation Youth Board (PRYB).

The Board is youth-based, youth-led, and youth-driven, formed by students from throughout Las Cruces who are in grades 7 to 12 (2019-2020 school year). The Board will meet every month, and as needed, to tackle a range of social problems that concern them, from the economy and environment to safety, tobacco, alcohol and other topics of interest that affect our community.

Board members will also be involved with special functions, events, and other campaigns that will encourage other students to get engaged and make a positive difference. If you are a student or know someone who is interested in making a difference in their community, the PRYB is a great opportunity to be involved, make connections, and learn about making lasting change in our city.

Applications are now available at:

Applicants must get the signature of a parent or guardian, and must submit two recommendations, one each from a professional and a peer.

The application deadline is May 31, and should be returned to:

Parks & Recreation Department

Attn: Las Cruces Youth Board

1501 East Hadley Ave.

Las Cruces NM, 88001
