SYC members serve the community by collaborating with local leaders, including the Mayor and City Council, to give youth a voice in city issues and to help solve youth issues through awareness campaigns, service projects, and community-building events.
Students who are currently in grades 7-11 may apply, as long as they are attending a middle school or high school within the Surprise city limits, attending a Dysart Unified School District high school, or reside within Surprise city limits.

- Your name, grade and school you attend.
- Why you want to be on the SYC?
- If you could bring one thing to this city or change one thing, what would it be? What can you and a group like SYC do about it?
