The Hickory Youth Council is recruiting new members for the 2016 – 2017 school year.
The Hickory Youth Council was established in 2000 by the Hickory City Council to give the city’s youth a voice in city government. All rising 9 – 12 grade high school students, living in the Hickory city limits or extra-territorial jurisdiction, are eligible to apply.
The Youth Council consists of 30 high school students who learn about city operations, participate in community service projects, and advise the City Council about issues and policies that affect the youth of Hickory. The Hickory Youth Council is also a chartered member of the State Youth Council of North Carolina. This organization offers opportunities for leadership training, community service, and networking opportunities for high school students across the state.
All applications must be received by close of business on Tuesday, May 31, 2016.
