Mayor's Youth Council


In partnership with Fishers High School, HSE High School, and Hamilton Southeastern Schools, the Mayor's Youth Council offers the opportunity to build community awareness, provide hands-on learning opportunities that enhance curriculum, and inspire future careers in the public sector.

The program includes:

  • Opportunities to participate in simulated search and rescue training
  • Exploration of the criminal justice system including a tour of the Hamilton County Jail
  • Investigation into water quality and the science it takes to ensure clean water is available community-wide
  • Experience working alongside a local non-profit
  • A chance to work with Mayor Fadness to develop a new policy that will impact City agencies.

Mayor Fadness has challenged participating students to dive into two projects:

  • Build a policy position that details how Fishers Parks & Recreation can launch and incorporate adaptive programming in its repertoire of services offered to the community
  • Begin building a policy position on what the group believes is the most critical issue for the future of Fishers. Monthly activities will take place during the school day, but students should expect to spend time outside of school hours working on projects or activities

As a member of the Mayor's Youth Council, students will utilize public speaking, critical thinking, STEM, budgeting, creativity, athleticism, leadership, and many social studies and civic skills. Students will learn from community leaders and professionals in city government, as well as in the not-for-profit and social services sector that exist beyond the walls of City Hall.


Mayor's Youth Council is no longer accepting applications for this year. If you have questions, please email Dan Domsic or call (317) 595-3151.
