About Our Youth City Council:
Our award-winning youth city council is a city sponsored organization made up of local high school students. We do service for the city and in the process learn more about local government.
Through the YCC we have a chance to speak at city council meetings, shadow city employees, sit on advisory boards and work together.
In 2010, 2011 and 2013 we earned the 1st place Award of Excellence for 20 members or less from the Association of Youth Councils. In 2014 we were able to compete with larger sized councils and took 3rd place for the Award of Excellence. We work hard all year and we are very proud of our accomplishments. We were also awarded the Mayor's Youth Volunteer Award in 2013 and every year earn the Presidential Service Award for all the community service we do!
We also had the opportunity to go to Washington D.C. for the CADCA conference. Here we learned what to look for in our community concerning drug abuse, as well as solutions to bring back to our community. We then took our knowledge to Logan, Utah at the Youth City Council Leadership Institute and taught what we learned to other youth city councils.
Just like our motto says, (we were inspired from our own city’s tag line) we truly are “Youth On The Move!” If you are a resident of the City of South Salt Lake, in 9th-12th grade, and have a cummulative GPA of 3.0 or higher you qualify for our youth council.
