Mayor's Youth Council
The City of Fishers is on a quest to connect residents of all ages with innovative opportunities to explore local government. While residents 18 and older can participate in the City Government Academy, Fishers Police Department Citizen’s Academy or Citizen’s Fire Academy, there are limited opportunities for youth to engage with city staff and learn more about how local government operates. On a quest to create more opportunities for interested youth, the City of Fishers has announced a brand new program, Mayor's Youth Council.

The Mayor's Youth Council will provide experiences for upper class students in the Hamilton Southeastern School District to explore local government, first-hand. Students will step into the uniform of a Fishers police officer, experience the job as a member of the Fishers Fire Department, plan and design a local park and much more.

This program intentionally engages the high school generation of Fishers residents in an effort to build community awareness, inspire future careers in the public sector and provide hands-on learning opportunities that enhance curriculum.

As a member of the Mayor's Youth Council, students will utilize the following skills:

  • Public speaking
  • Critical thinking
  • STEM
  • Budgeting
  • Creativity
  • Athleticism
  • Leadership
  • Social Studies/Civics

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. The program promises to provide a holistic exploration of public services from several viewpoints for a community.

The deadline to apply for the Mayor's Youth Council has now closed. Applicants accepted into the program will be contact by Dan Domsic. Anyone with additional questions is encouraged to contact Dan Domsic via email or by phone at (317) 595-3151.
