The program also includes panel discussions, guest speakers, and the opportunity to be involved in a special event.

Applications will be accepted through July 21 and are available at www.cityoffortwayne.org/myec.html. An applicant must be a city resident and enrolled as a sophomore-senior for the 2014-15 school year.

*All applicants must include a completed application form from the website.

*Finalists must take part in an in-person interview. Interviews will take place July-August.

*Space on the council is limited and is a one-year commitment.
