Happy Valley Youth Council

The Happy Valley Youth Council is an advisory board serving as teen advocates in the community.  Youth Councilors collaborate on ideas and information and look to the City Council for mentorship and assistance.  The Youth Council encourages community members to join their events and attend their monthly council meetings.

In 2010, the city embarked on a mission to involve local high school students in a forum where they could exchange diverse opinions on matters of importance to their peer group in a safe and non-judgmental atmosphere. This advisory board of teen advocates consists of members who must be of high school age and reside in the City of Happy Valley.
