Student Leadership Council

Congressman Mike Thompson has launched a Congressional Student Leadership Council, an exciting, semester-long program that allows local students to work directly with Mike and his staff to develop leadership skills, get to know how government works, and engage with our community first hand. The Council is open to all high school students in California's Fifth Congressional District.

Applicants should be passionate about helping their community and eager to learn more about federal, state and local government. This is a semester-long commitment where students will be expected to meet several times a month and complete a final project. There will be a Council for each of the five counties that Mike represents, including Contra Costa, Lake, Napa, Solano, and Sonoma Counties.

Interested students can submit their application by filling out this form and emailing it to Thompson's office. Students can then send the application to the below email that corresponds to the county in which they live:

The deadline for the 2019 Fall Semester Council is Tuesday, September 10. If you have questions, please contact Rebecca Roberts by calling 707-645-1888 or by emailing
