Marana is looking to appoint three youth delegates to attend the League of Arizona Cities and Towns annual conference. The ideal candidates will be aspiring leaders who care about making a difference in their community.
This event will take place on Wednesday, August 24 at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess in Scottsdale, Arizona. Marana will provide transportation costs and registration fees for attendees.
During the youth program, delegates will engage with their peers and with state leaders on a number of important issues affecting young people. In the morning, the Governor’s Youth Commission will present to the delegates in a session dedicated to inspiring community leadership, in particular as it relates to the GYC’s five core issues: substance abuse, bullying, teen dating violence, distracted driving, and civics education.
Following this stimulating conversation, the delegation will participate in Learning through Laughter. During this exercise, attendees will learn confidence and leadership through improvisation and comedy. Tristan Gandolfi, Founder and CEO of Humor Writes will lead delegates through a fun, interactive workshop.
Finally, youth will have an opportunity to network with other students and display poster boards that highlight unique programs or ideas from the various youth councils.
If you are interested in participating in this program, please complete the short application here by Wednesday, July 27, at 4:00 p.m. If you have any further questions, please contact Tony Hunter at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (520) 382-1982.
