There are many types of positions in the PSWD Youth Board. There are Voting and Non-voting Positions which ensure diversity in the voting pool from year to year. Some positions hold 1-year terms, while others serve 2-year terms. Serving as a 2-year term requires a 2-year commitment and is open to sophomores and juniors. These positions consist of a Vice, and a Senior Position (ex: Vice Clerk and Clerk). In a 2-year position, the Vice is a non-voting member, and the Sr. Position is a voting member. However, 2-year teams are encouraged to work together in voting decisions. There are 5 Vice and Sr. Position Teams, 3 1-year positions, 1-2 Chair(s), and 5 adult members.
