Application and Requirements

We are currently accepting applications for the Youth Council Class of 2019. See below for application instructions and requirements. The deadline to apply is Aug. 1, 2018.


Who Can Apply?

Springdale Youth Council is a free program that is open to sophomores, juniors, and seniors who live in the Springdale School District. This includes students in public, private, and charter school, and home-school students.

There will be no GPA requirements; however, applicants must have a non-relative employer, teacher, school administrator, government employee, community leader, or a community member who holds a staff position or is a board or commission member at a 501c(3) organization, religious institution, or government entity, who can sponsor their application, vouch for the student’s commitment to the program, and commit their time to help keep the student on track. Committee for Civic Engagement and Inclusion members, Springdale City Council members, the Mayor, City Clerk, District Court Judge, City Attorney, or any staff mentors cannot sponsor students.

If you have any questions about application sponsorships, please email Communications@SpringdaleAR.gov.
