The Moorpark City Council is now accepting applications for appointment to the Moorpark Teen Council for a one-year term beginning on July 1, 2021 and ending on June 30, 2022.
Appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by City Council, the Teen Council typically consists of between 7 and 15 members who are Moorpark teens entering 7th to 12th grades in the fall. Selection of members shall be one (1) representative from each grade level from 7th grade to 12th grade and the remaining members as representatives at large. (The City Council may appoint up to 16 members if it determines doing so would help meet the goal of having at least one representative from each grade level.) All applicants must reside within the city limits of the City of Moorpark and be enrolled in school. Special attention will be given to ensure that all middle schools and high schools in Moorpark have some representation on the Teen Council. Teens appointed to the Teen Council would typically be limited to not serving more than a total of three years on the Teen Council to allow more teens the opportunity to serve as a Teen Council representative.
The Teen Council assists the City’s Recreation Division with planning and implementing Teen Programs. The Teen Council will typically meet monthly (beginning in September 2021) at Arroyo Vista Recreation Center located at 4550 Tierra Rejada Road, and may also be asked to volunteer at City of Moorpark special events sponsored by the City’s Parks, Recreation, and Community Services Department.
