The Students on Commissions program is a great way for high school juniors and seniors to contribute to their community in an official capacity, while gaining valuable insight about municipal government. Students from any of the Eden Prairie public or private schools and who are residents are welcome to apply.
The application process begins in May and appointments for the following school year are made by the City Council in June. The time commitment is typically one evening per month for the duration of a 4-month or 8-month term. Students who participate in the program as juniors must reapply if they wish to serve as seniors.
