Youth Council

Our Purpose

The Lehi Youth Council is dedicated to providing leadership training and service opportunities for interested Lehi youth in grades 9-12. The Youth Council helps the elected officials understand the needs of children and youth in the community and works with groups throughout the city to provide service and leadership opportunities. This is a great opportunity to learn more about your local government, participate in community events and activities, and have fun!

The members of the Youth Council attend a legislative session at the Utah State Capitol each January where they have the opportunity to meet our legislators and hear guest speakers. There is an annual convention of Youth Councils held each March at Utah State University in Logan where councils learn from and compete against each other. This 3-day event is full of training and activity sessions. The youth members will help choose the activities and opportunities that they will participate in throughout the year. 

Youth Council meetings will typically be held once a month and run concurrently with the Alpine School District yearly schedule. Don’t forget to bring your permission form, too!
