SYC logo -NEW

The city of Surprise is recruiting new members for the Surprise Youth Council (SYC) – a group of impactful teens who are making a difference in their community! 

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. 

Applications are being accepted now through March 22. The application consists of a video submission, no longer than 1 minute and 30 seconds, and should include the following information:

  • 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?
  • Briefly tell us about a time you were fearless, creative or hardworking.

The videos should be sent to Youth Services Coordinator Lord Garcillano by uploading your application video from your Google Drive and sharing it with cityofsurpriseyouth@gmail.com.

Applicants must also have a parent or guardian complete and return a Parent Acknowledgement Form.  

For questions or more information, please contact Lord Garcillano at 623.222.1035 or lord.garcillano@surpriseaz.gov or visit www.surpriseaz.gov/syc
