The Village of Lombard is currently accepting applications for its 2017 Youth Leadership Program. High school students who live in Lombard and are interested in learning about local government and public service are encouraged to apply.

Participating students will receive interactive presentations and tours from leaders in the Village Manager’s Office, Finance, Community Development, Police, Fire and Public Works Departments.

The program will take place at Village Hall, 255 E. Wilson Ave., on Thursday, Feb. 2, from 4 – 6 p.m., and on Thursday, Feb. 9, at Fire Station 45, 50 E. Wilson Ave., from 4 – 6 p.m. The final session will coincide with a regularly scheduled Village Board Meeting at Village Hall on Thursday, Feb. 16, from 7 – 9 p.m. Students will be recognized by Lombard’s Village President and Board of Trustees, and will be presented with a certificate of completion for the program.

The Youth Leadership program is an initiative of the Village’s Community Relations Committee, which is focused on creating and fostering relationships between the Village of Lombard and its residents. “The goal of the program is to provide the opportunity for high school aged Lombard students to learn about the inner workings of their local government. It also allows students to see how each department works together to get things done,” said Community Relations Chair and Lombard Trustee Robyn Pike. “This is a fun experience, a great way to learn about the Village, and it could also be a helpful addition to college resumes.”

The class size will be kept to a maximum of 10 students. Staff will also share their contact information with students in order to serve as future mentors as students apply for colleges and eventually transition into careers. All students ages 14 -18 are invited to apply, however Lombard residents will be given preferential admittance. A minimum of 7 students is required for the program to take place. Applications are available at and can be dropped off at Village Hall or emailed to by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 27, 2017. Students chosen for the program will be notified by Monday, Jan. 31, 2017.

Anyone with questions regarding the program or application process can contact Lombard’s Communications Coordinator Avis Meade at (630) 620-5718 or
