Teens! Looking to get involved in your community? The Apache Junction Youth Advisory Council provides our teens with a voice in community issues, education on local government, and develops leadership skills. And we are looking to increase our numbers. This group acts as youth advisors to the Apache Junction City Council, city boards and commissions and city departments on matters directly related to youth programming and youth-related issues. Members must be in 8th-12th grade and either reside in or attend school in Apache Junction.
We are currently looking to add new applicants to our council. Applicants will need to be entering 8th-12th grade in the 2021-2022 school year. Meetings will run twice a month, with additional meetings and volunteer requirements scheduled as necessary.
Come join us as we tackle different issues that teens deal with, learn leadership skills, volunteer for your community and make new friends!
Applications can be found at www.ajcity.net/yac or can be picked up at the front desk at the MGC. For more information about this program, please contact JJ Underwood at (480) 474- 5207 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
