The service-oriented group aims to help teens learn about community and civic matters, gain leadership experience, participate in service opportunities and make new friends.

Council members meet on the first Thursday of each month and have at least one additional project during the month, and should expect to spend four to five hours a month on council business.

Teens that are going into 10th through 12th grades next year can apply on the city’s website at mapleton.org. Applications are due by midnight on Friday, Feb. 1.
