Yes, We Need To Get Our Kids Engaged

It’s an exciting time in Surprise!  You can feel the city coming into its own. We are growing into a well-rounded community where families can enjoy a healthy lifestyle, find and keep good jobs, and build a sense of home and community.

It’s clear that NOW is the time to reach out to our young people, since any growing community needs a foundation of tomrrow’s leaders, young people who grow up caring about Surprise and being part of the process.

That’s why I am helping lead an initiative to develop a Youth Master Plan for our City, and I’m starting by asking young people to help us build it!  What do our young people expect from our city? What are their needs? How can we help build a community they will think of as home? How can we create an atmosphere where our young people want to build their own families and careers right here in Surprise?
