Registration Open For 2023 Mayor's Youth Conference

June 26, 2023

Cedar Rapids-area high school students are invited to attend the first-ever Mayor’s Youth Conference on Monday, October 9 at the Downtown Cedar Rapids Public Library.

Participants will spend a day with their peers exploring educational and career opportunities in the area, networking with the next generation of young professionals, and discovering how they can grow and thrive in Cedar Rapids after graduation.

“We have a responsibility to guide our youth to success and empower them to become leaders who will shape our community,” said Mayor Tiffany O’Donnell. “The Mayor’s Youth Conference will bridge the gap between uncertainty and the bright future that awaits high school graduates right here in Cedar Rapids.”

“This event will be a steppingstone for our youth, an investment in their personal and professional development, and an opportunity to become part of the next generation of leaders in Cedar Rapids,” said O’Donnell.

Registration is free and open to students entering their sophomore, junior, or senior year this fall. Those interested in attending are encouraged to apply soon for this limited-capacity event.

Applications are available on the City website at CityofCR.com/MYC.
