Mayor's Youth Council


In partnership with Fishers High School, HSE High School, and Hamilton Southeastern Schools, the Mayor's Youth Council offers the opportunity to build community awareness, provide hands-on learning opportunities that enhance curriculum, and inspire future careers in the public sector.

The program includes:

  • Opportunities to participate in simulated search and rescue training
  • Exploration of the criminal justice system including a tour of the Hamilton County Jail
  • Investigation into water quality and the science it takes to ensure clean water is available community-wide
  • Experience working alongside a local non-profit
  • A chance to work with Mayor Fadness to develop a new policy that will impact City agencies.

Mayor Fadness will also challenge the group to make recommendations on various policy areas as capstone projects, including the following topics:

  • What are 5 ideas or trends that will change the face of Fishers?
  • What are creative places doing to create creative spaces?

As a member of the Mayor's Youth Council, students will utilize public speaking, critical thinking, STEM, budgeting, creativity, athleticism, leadership, and many social studies and civic skills. Students will learn from community leaders and professionals in city government, as well as in the not-for-profit and social services sector that exist beyond the walls of City Hall.
