Lindon City - Youth Council 2022-23

The Lindon City Youth Council is a great opportunity for youth to serve their community!

Deadline for submissions is May 10, 2022 at Midnight. Review of applications and interviews May 11-21, 2022.

Our Purpose

The Lindon City Youth Council is a new organization dedicated to providing leadership training and service opportunities for interested Lindon youth in grades 9-12. Youth Council offers Lindon area teens opportunities to gain a greater understanding and appreciation for their community, its citizens, and elected officials through service and interaction.

The Youth Council will help the elected officials understand the needs of children and youth in the community and work with groups throughout the city to provide service and leadership opportunities. This is a great opportunity to learn more about your local government, participate in community events and activities, and have fun!

What to expect:

Typically, there will be one meeting and one activity or service project a month. The members of the Youth Council will attend a legislative session at the Utah State Capitol each January where they have the opportunity to meet our legislators and hear guest speakers. Plus, during the year, Youth Council members will be expected to attend one city council meeting and one planning commission meeting of their own choosing to report on to the Youth Council. Meetings to be held once a month from 4-5 pm on the 2nd or 4th Monday of each month.

Activities and Events (subject to change)

Lindon Days (July 30-August 6), Preparedness Fair, City Halloween Trunk-Or-Treat activity, Thanksgiving service, Legislature day at the Capitol, Arbor Day with the Tree Board, and the 2023 Memorial Day program, City Council Meetings, and other service projects, in addition to our monthly hour-long meetings.
