MAYOR’S YOUTH COUNCIL

COMMUNITY SERVICES

GENERAL INFO

Overview: The Fountain Hills Mayor’s Youth Council is a group of high school students dedicated to learning about how local and state government bodies run as well as serving the community through volunteerism. Council members learn about leadership and the skills that they can learn to become leaders. What do we do? Council members share their perspective on youth issues by serving as liaisons to the Mayor, Town Council, and peers, as well as provide a variety of community service projects, including cleaning their own assigned street through the Adopt-a-Street program. Members also learn about the services provided by other organizations such as Rural Metro Fire Department, Maricopa County Sheriffs’ Office, local historians, artists and the Parks division. Overnight retreats, special dinners and social gatherings provide fun, too! How? Members meet twice monthly and accomplish their mission through volunteerism and civic education and participation as well as an annual field trip to the State Capitol while the Legislature is in session. They also provide leadership on Make a Difference Day, serve as a listening board to the youth in the community and provide the Mayor information from their perspective, promote a sense of civic involvement and community pride, and become positive role models through responsible leadership. Interested in becoming a member? Please contact Heather Ware, MYC Staff Advisor, (480) 816-5108.

We will review sequences you’re just not sure about, begin exploring MELT Mapping, develop a deeper understanding of the 4 R’s of MELT and learn additional moves, techniques and sequences not found in The MELT Method Book that will enhance and deepen the power of healing using MELT.

PARKS AND RECREATION Through a cooperative community effort by the Town of Fountain Hills, the Fountain Hills Cultural & Civic Association and its Greening of Downtown Committee, the Four Peaks Rotary Club, and the Fountain Hills Rotary Club the development of the Rotary Community Musical Park is now complete. The original vision for this project was to offer a unique play experience connecting people through creativity, unique soundscape and sculptural design in an outdoor environment. Featuring 14 instruments, the musical park is located within Fountain Park, near the playground area. This distinctive play area is designed for kids of all ages, including those that are still kids at heart. But these instruments are more than just for play, the value of music is noted to have lasting effects beyond just a cheerful tune. Music helps to build reasoning skills and cognitive development. It can increase the capacity of your memory, refine time management and organizational skills, and teach perseverance. And playing music is just plain fun! It builds confidence, encourages creativity and self-expression.
