Nampa Mayor's Teen Council
Join Mayor Kling and Council Leadership for the opportunity to learn more about Mayor's Teen Council on Wednesday, September 22, 2021 at 5:30 p.m. at Nampa City Hall.
What is the Mayor's Teen Council?
The Nampa Mayor's Teen Council is an official council for the City of Nampa made up of 9th-12th graders from public, public charter, private and even those who are home schooled.
Applications can be submitted at www.cityofnampa.us/mtc and parents must give permission for high school students to join.
Why should I join?
To gain leadership skills, participate in Community Service Projects (which almost all colleges and college scholarships require), make a difference in your community, and learn how local government really works.
How do I join?
It’s simple. Talk to your parents and complete the online application.
Submissions preferred by September 30, 2021 for coordinating purposes but if you're reading this after this date, please contact us! We'd love to hear from you.
When are meetings held?
We meet the second and fourth Wednesdays of every month from September—May at 4 p.m. (locations vary but are primarily held at Nampa City Hall - 411 3rd Street South.) If you want to be involved, we would love to have you join -- bring your friends with you! There is no cost to join or to participate.
What types of activities does the Nampa Mayor’s Teen Council do?
It is really up to the teens who are involved. What is important to you, and how do you want to make a difference?
In previous years, MTC has produced a Public Service Announcement that aired on Ch 7, Ch 6, Ch 9, Ch 2 & CableOne on Crosswalk Safety & Distracted Driving, and written & performed Seatbelt Education in local schools and at after-school programs. Other activities have included: Rake Up Nampa, Clean Up Nampa, Downtown Trick or Treat, Adopt A Family for Christmas, Bell Ringing for Salvation Army, Special Olympic Idaho Winter Games, Special Olympics USA Youth Activation Summit, Health Fest, and we help organizations like Kiwanis and the Nampa Chamber of Commerce.
Local Businesses and City Departments have allowed MTC to go on tours which has built some great relationships.
Each year we try to take some youth to a National League of Cities Conference. In the past, this has been in Washington, D.C., where the teens are required to write an issue paper or "white paper" and present it to our Congressmen. The teens are required to apply for this opportunity, and are chosen based on an essay and their involvement with MTC.
