Applications are now being accepted for the 2017-2018 Mayor’s Youth Council for community-minded young people who are interested in learning more about City government, civic trusteeship and community leadership.
Positions are open for high school students between the ages of 14-18. Those interested must attend school or be home schooled and reside in Cheyenne. The 2017-18 term will begin in August 2017 and conclude in May 2018.
