The St. George Youth City Council (YCC) 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.
The Youth City Council is a prestigious organization that replicates the St. George City Council, but is administered by the youth of our community. It is comprised of a Mayor, City Manager, Recorder, Operations Director, Communications Director, Service and Recreation Director, Government Liaison, and Council Members. 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 YCC further helps to improve students' abilities in leadership roles, project development and management skills.
In January of each year, application opens for participation in the following school year. Apply NOW and embrace the possibilities of your own potential.
