A summary of the discussions from each Future Leaders Town Hall event will be carried forward for consideration at the 110th Arizona Town Hall, convening on November 12-15, 2017 in Maricopa County. This event will be attended by over 100 leaders, policy makers, professionals and students from across the state.

About Future Leaders Town Hall

In 2011, Arizona Town Hall debuted its Future Leaders Town Hall (formerly known as Youth Town Hall) in partnership with Arizona State University and Maricopa Community Colleges in an effort to gather students with diverse perspectives and empower them through the Town Hall process to work together to create solutions and strategies that will have a positive impact on Arizona. 

While there are student representatives participating in the three-day, twice annual Town Halls, these separate events afford students an opportunity to gather and bring their energy and innovative thinking to help create solutions to the critical issues facing Arizona, such as education, jobs, transportation, arts and culture, health care, government and the economy.

The ideas that come out of the Future Leaders Town Halls are shared with all of those participating in the conversation at the statewide event typically held a few weeks later.

What students have said about their FLTH experience:

  • "My experience today was very influencing and informative. I will learn to give those 'vulnerable populations' a voice." 
  • "A truly great experience. It’s fun to know the different opinions everyone has." 
  • "Hopefully changes will be made and people will become proactive." 
  • "I will attend more Town Hall meetings and get involved with local grassroots organizations."
