Join the Eureka Youth Council Internship Program

The Community Services Department is excited to announce the first session of the Eureka Youth Council, beginning September 25th.

This program is limited to 5 council members and is highly competitive. Applications are due by September 6th to the Recreation Supervisor.

The City of Eureka Youth Council Internship Program is an exciting opportunity for youth ages 14-18 to learn about their local government while representing Eureka’s youth population and making decisions on proposed positive change for youth in Eureka. Eureka will choose five youth to serve on the youth council each semester over the course of 8 weeks. This program will run Wednesday, Thursday, & Friday between the hours of 3:30pm-5pm. (Students will also be required to attend two City Council Meetings that take place on the first and third Tuesday of each month at 6:00pm). 

  • Applications due by September 6th
  • Interviews the week of September 9th
  • Selection the week of September 16th
  • Program start date – September 25th
  • Program end date – November 15th

This internship program will put youth right in the middle of city operations, while also giving them a platform to advise the Eureka City Council on important issues impacting Eureka’s youth. Youth will learn the inner workings of city operations, as well as get the opportunity to make decisions on behalf of the youth population.

Need Volunteers for Fun, Creative Project

We are looking to create an interactive, creative, fun, family-oriented experience to Explore Eureka and to showcase the beauty of our 13 city parks and our new Eureka waterfront trail.

To be honest, we’re not sure what it would be like yet but the intent is to get local folks – as well as tourists – to get out on the trail and into our parks, be active, showcase so much of what Eureka has to offer – all while having a good time.

All we know for sure right now is that it will have a social media component and a brochure or map to go with it. Some of our potential ideas include:

  • Photo contests 
  • Video contests
  • Scavenger hunts
  • Activity challenges

We need your help!

If you would like to be in on the very early stages of this exciting project and then to help steer it in the future, we’re looking for volunteers to attend a community meeting at the Adorni Center Conference Room on Wednesday April 10 at 5:30PM.
