    • The Yelm Creative District is looking for student volunteers! 
      Creative Districts are geographically defined areas where a concentration of artistic, cultural, and economic activity takes place. The Creative District program provides a platform for artists and creatives to help develop their local economy. It fosters innovation, entrepreneurship, and community values. This combination creates a holistic, sustainable, and diverse economy so that communities and their future generations can thrive. They meet every other Wednesday at 6 pm at Yelm City Hall. They try to limit meetings to one hour. 

      Joining the taskforce right now would include attending monthly meetings and the opportunity to help shape the future of the creative space in Yelm. Right now, the task force is focusing on outreach, so student volunteers would get to work on allowing a younger demographic of voices to be heard. If you're interested in this opportunity, please contact Mrs. Mathis in the YHS Career Center.
