Mayor's Teen Council Application

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 10th-12th graders from public, public charter, private and even those who are home schooled.

The Mayor’s Teen Council meets on the second and fourth Wednesdays at 4 p.m. There’s no cost to join.

Applications can be submitted at 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 Member Application (we would prefer submissions by September 21, 2018 for coordinating purposes). We meet the second and fourth Wednesdays of every month from September—May at 4 p.m. (locations vary between the Nampa Civic Center - 311 3rd Street South and Nampa City Hall - 411 3rd Street South. If you want to be involved, we would love to have you join and bring your friends with you. It’s always more fun to be with friends. 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.
