The Teen Council advises city officials on such matters as the needs of the teen population including after school programming, and special teen events.

The Moorpark Teen Council consists of a minimum of seven and up to a maximum of fifteen teen citizens who are appointed by the mayor and City Council for a one-year term to review matters related to the teen population. Members of the Teen Council are Moorpark residents who currently attend middle or high school.

​Teen Council Recruitment: Now Open!

Application Deadline: May 5

The Moorpark City Council requests that interested persons submit a Teen Council Application for consideration for appointment to the Moorpark Teen Council for one-year terms beginning on July 1, 2019, and ending on June 30, 2020.

Appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by City Council, the Teen Council typically consists of no less than seven (7) and no more than fifteen (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 insure 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 2019) 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.

Applications will only be accepted during an open annual recruitment and in compliance with the posted instructions for the Teen Council recruitment.

Applications must be submitted no later than Friday, May 10, 2019, by 5:00 p.m.
