Interested in social media, journalism, politics, public service, or making change? Apply to be a part of the Fairhope Junior City Council! We need dedicated, innovative students who want to be an active part in their community. The council is open to any high school student who lives in the City of Fairhope’s Planning Jurisdiction. The student will serve a two-year term as a representative for his or her high school (this includes home school and virtual school students).

What Is It?

    The Fairhope Junior City Council works as a liaison between Fairhope youth and the city. We’ll be interacting with Fairhope families, business owners, politicians, students- everyone! Our mission is to get Fairhope youth more involved in our community and to inform the community of what’s going on in Fairhope through student-led media and special events.

  • gaining experience in leadership, communication, journalism, politics/local government, public service, and community development
