The Fountain Hills Mayor’s Youth Council is a group of teens dedicated to learning how government works as well as representing the concerns of their peers to the Mayor and Town Council members.

They accomplish this through hands-on experiences in local government, training sessions with town departments, a field trip to the State Capital, many community service projects, as well as have fun, make new friends, plan events and volunteer.

More than a community service organization, the Mayor’s Youth Council encourages leadership skills that students in grades 9-12 will use for their entire lives.

Meetings are held on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month from 4:30 to 6 p.m., starting August 27. Mayor Ginny Dickey invites all youth in these grades to complete an application that can be found on the town website,, or at the Fountain Hills High School Office, kiosks in the Library, Community Center, or Town Hall.

Applications are being taken from Aug. 6 through Sept. 12, 2019 and can be dropped off at Town Hall, 16705 E Ave. of the Fountains, Attention MYC Advisor, Volunteer Coordinator. MYC gives youth a chance to be heard and make a difference in their community.

Community Service hours are given for participation.
