Youth City Council seeks sophomore applicants
The City of Broken Arrow is now accepting applications for the 2020-2021 Youth City Council program. Youth Council members meet once per month, typically at 5 p.m. on the second Tuesday of the month.
Youth City Council provides a great opportunity for high school students to learn how municipal government works, obtain an understanding of local policy making and help serve their community. Participants will meet with City Councilors and other City officials, tour public facilities, attend public meetings, and demonstrate what they learned by conducting a mock council meeting at the end of each program year.
To be eligible, new applicants must:
- Reside within the Broken Arrow fence line, or be eligible to attend Broken Arrow Public Schools
- Be a sophomore in high school in the fall
- Maintain at least a 3.0 GPA
- Set a proper example for the youth of Broken Arrow
Since 2019, the Youth City Council is a three-year program. Applications for 2020-2021 are due Sept. 4. Details and forms are available at BrokenArrowOK.gov/YouthCityCouncil.
