The City of Surprise is encouraging potential leaders of tomorrow to get involved today by serving on the Surprise Youth Leadership Commission.   

The commission is made up of 11 high school seniors enrolled this academic year in public, private or charter schools, or participating in home schooling or other educational venues in Surprise.  

Applicants must be Surprise residents throughout their term; complete an online application; have a letter of recommendation; and participate in an interview.  “The Youth Leadership Commission is an outstanding opportunity to involve young leaders in the Surprise governing process,” said John Williams, District 3 councilmember, who is the council liaison with the commission. “I look forward to an active and exciting experience for our young people.”

Among the commission’s activities:

• Meet bimonthly in council chambers and at various other times to develop initiatives and projects that will enhance the quality of life in Surprise.

• Participate with the City Council at workshops and council meetings. Members will be scheduled to participate in two City Council meetings and/or work sessions and will be seated on the dais.

• Develop events and programs that will provide greater opportunities for resident involvement at City Hall.

• Attend enrichment sessions to research and apply for scholarship opportunities.

• Meet with state representatives and other regional leaders to discuss ways to enhance the quality of life in Surprise and the West Valley.

Applications are available online at www.surpriseaz.gov/youthleadership and at the Mayor/Council Office, 16000 N. Civic Center Plaza. The submission deadline is Sept. 5.

For information, call 623-222-1300.
