This notice is archived content and this information may no longer be accurate.

Tampa teens looking for an inside glimpse into how City Hall works are invited to apply for seats on the Mayor’s Youth Corps.


The Mayor’s Youth Corps is comprised of up to 40 students in grades 9, 10, or 11 who attend a public or private high school within the Tampa city limits.  Applications are now being accepted for one-year terms.  Application forms are available in city of Tampa school Guidance Offices and will be accepted until October 24, 2019 at 5 p.m.   Members of the Youth Leadership Council review the applications, conduct interviews, and make recommendations regarding acceptance into the program.

Youth Corps members learn about and participate in city government, meet with Mayor Castor, conduct community service projects, participate in state and national conferences, and run social media platforms that include video production.  Teens also learn leadership and employability skills while serving in the Youth Corps.  


The Mayor’s Youth Corps provides a forum for Tampa teens to engage with city leaders, participate in their community, connect with their peers, and learn about civics and city government. It is an incredible opportunity that will give them experience and know-how to help their community.
