CCYCLogo-removebg-previewThe Cedar City Youth Council (CCYC) is open to high school students who live in Cedar City and are interested in government, service, and leadership or would like to get involved in our local community. CCYC members learn about city government and management, meet elected officials, and participate in local service projects. CCYC membership is a great addition to student resumes, college applications and gives youth in Cedar City real-world experience and insight into local politics and public service.

2023 Youth Council Members: William Garza (Mayor), Mary Jane Ward (Council Recorder), Andrew Barrick, Kathryn Garza, Braelynn Haley, Brenna Haley, Sadie Hinck, Lydia Smith, Lara Sorenson, Logan Nelson, and Hadley Persons (Withdrawn).
