College Open House Monday, May 10th, 5PM – 7PM Eastern Time
Please encourage your current high school students to attend our college open house. Meet with admissions representatives from IU, IUPUI, Trine, Valparaiso University, and Rose-Hulman. Meet students from Rose-Hulman, IU, Purdue, and others to learn how they can get involved with FIRST at those institutions. Students will learn about scholarship opportunities, get advice on how to apply, and leverage their FIRST experience in their application process. We will be using the highly interactive platform Gather Town.

Marion County High School Students
Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett’s applications are now being accepted for the 2021-22 Mayor’s Youth Leadership Council (MYLC) to amplify youth voice and perspective in this city. Applications are open now until June 18, 2021, and are in partnership with Leadership Indianapolis, the Marion County Commission on Youth (MCCOY), and the City of Indianapolis, with support provided by the Lilly Endowment.
The MYLC will serve two primary functions:
- To train young people to become civically engaged now and to build a sense of civic responsibility in them for the future.
- To provide an advisory group to the Mayor and city government that will keep city leaders connected to the issues of young citizens.
Details on the application process:
- Completed applications are due by 5:00 pm on Friday, June 18th.
- Candidates will be notified and invited to interview on June 23rd. Selected students will be notified asked to confirm their interview time within 48 hours (by June 25th).
- All MYLC interviews will take place June 28th-30th.
- There will be 25 total members chosen for the MYLC 2021-2022 class and announced on July 2nd.
- Those not selected will be notified (no later than July 5th)
- Orientation will take place in July, time TBA.
This council is open to all current sophomore and junior students in your school, program, and/or family. This opportunity is not reserved only for high-achieving students or those in prominent leadership roles already; MCCOY and connected partners hope to find several unsung heroes or quiet leaders who have a passion for making the city a better place. Interested students can apply here by June 18th.
