Arizona Town Hall, in partnership with community colleges, universities and other organizations, will host virtual Future Leaders Town Halls on "Creating Vibrant Communities" for students around the state. High school and college students from across Arizona will have the opportunity to learn about, discuss and weigh in on crucial policy issues.
A summary of the discussions from each Future Leaders Town Hall event will be carried forward for consideration at the 113th Statewide Town Hall, convening in fall 2021. This event will be attended by leaders, policy makers, professionals and students from across the state.
For students under the age of 18, please print and fill out a permission to be photographed slip and bring it with you to the program. Click here for the form.
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 statewide Town Hall, 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.
