The St. George Youth City Council (SGYCC) is a self-directed group of teens who are charged with representing and advocating for youth throughout the community and to the St. George City Government.
As a collaborative effort, the group's main objectives are to develop future leaders, give formal voice to youth, engage in civic education and community service, and improve conditions for local youth. All while promoting the St. George City Values, Integrity, Innovation and Efficiency, Professional and Personable Services, Teamwork, and Excellence.
Members learn about the challenges and successes of local government, gain an understanding of the operations and functions, and take an active interest in addressing issues relating to local affairs, community events and youth issues. Participating in the SGYCC further helps to improve members' abilities in leadership roles, project development and management skills.
