Classrooms are an important component of education, but an innovative partnership between the City of Fishers and Hamilton Southeastern Schools is providing students with opportunities to step outside brick and mortar buildings for experiential learning. The Mayor's Youth Council returns during the 2017-2018 school year offering hands-on opportunities to connect with the community in various ways.Learn more and complete an application, today!
Beginning on Thursday, September 21st from 9 to 11 a.m., the program rotates at locations throughout Fishers and into surrounding communities. This year, Mayor Fadness has challenged participating students to build a policy position that details how Fishers Parks & Recreation can launch and incorporate adaptive programming in its repertoire of services offered to the community. Monthly activities will take place during the school day, but students should expect to spend time outside of school hours working on projects or activities.
Parents, permission is required for students to be approved into the program. 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/civic skills. The program was developed in partnership with Fishers High School, HSE High School and Hamilton Southeastern Schools to ensure it helps support and enhance classroom curriculum.
