The Happy Valley Youth Council is an advisory board serving as teen advocates in their 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.


The Happy Valley Youth Council has organized Rx Drug Turn-In events as a part of their commitment to the well-being of the community. The previous years’ efforts have in total brought in over 5,000 pounds of drug items. 

Too often, unused prescriptions or over the counter medications find their way into the wrong hands. This is dangerous and can lead to tragic outcomes.  Safe disposal protects our water supply and keeps drugs out of the hands of unauthorized or recreational users.  The Happy Valley Youth Council will be holding their Annual RX Drug Take Back Event on Saturday, April 30 from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm in the City Hall parking lot. All drug materials will be accepted, no questions asked.

A big thank you to our community partners for their support and assistance!
