Youth Council

About the Council

YC Capital photo2024"Building future leaders by learning & serving in the community."

The Saratoga Springs City Youth Council is a group of concerned, active teens who live within the City. Members of Youth Council have a strong interest in government, local issues and civic responsibilities. The Youth Council helps to give back to the community through learning activities and service projects.

As part of the Civic Events Committee the youth council will have the opportunity to participate in the planning and implementing of various citywide events. Involvement fosters a greater appreciation for our government and helps to bestow many skills that will be helpful throughout life. It is also a platform to interact with peers and make new friends.

Membership

To be eligible to participate on the Saratoga Springs City Youth Council, applicants must be a Saratoga Springs City resident of high school age (9th -12th grades). Members of the Youth City Council serve for a period of one year from their registration date.
