Youth Council announces summit

The Rochester Hills Government Youth Council is inviting teens in grades 8-12 from local schools and student government and leadership councils from all over southeastern Michigan to participate in the second Youth Leadership in Local Government Summit, scheduled for Saturday, March 10 at Rochester Hills City Hall.

Student groups will learn the inner workings of government at the day-long event through keynote and breakout sessions with departments of local government. Sessions during the day will culminate in a mock council meeting, where students will have the opportunity to present proposals to a “council” of their peers. The summit will also feature fun activities, keynote speakers, and lunch.

Individual students and groups can register for the Youth Summit at no cost. The registration deadline is February 22. Donations to help in the youth council’s efforts are accepted through the Community Foundation of Greater Rochester.

For more information, visit the Youth Representative area of or contact Leanne Scott at (248) 841-2460.

Youth Council was established by city council to promote youth involvement in local government through active participation and the mutual exchange of ideas and experience. The 15-member Youth Council is comprised of Rochester Hills residents and includes representatives from each city-council district. One-year terms run concurrent with the school year.
