The Mayor’s Youth Council has opened its application process for the 2014-15 academic year.

Wichita-based students in grades nine through 12 are eligible to apply. Applicants will be assessed on their civic interest, community service and leadership potential. Up to 40 members will be selected.

Mayor Carl Brewer formed the council in 2007 with the goal of allowing youth in the community to participate in civic issues and learn about city government. Members of the youth council will participate in civic activities, volunteer events and community discussions.

Applications can be turned in to the City Manager’s Office on the 13th floor at City Hall, 455 N. Main, or by e-mail at mayorsyouthcouncil@wichita.gov. Applications are available online at www.wichita.gov.

The deadline is 5 p.m on April 11. For more information, contact Robert Hovenkamp at 316-303-8051.
