Yakima Town Hall welcomes middle school, high school, and local college instructors to apply for complimentary tickets for their students to attend one of the five speaker events during the 2021-2022 school year. All events are held at the Capitol Theatre and last one hour. Transportation coordination is the responsibility of the teacher/school.
New applications from teachers are now being accepted. Please specify your preference for date/speaker using the form below. We’ll do our best to accommodate you, but applying early will increase the odds of getting the speaker of your choice.
Openings will be filled based upon your application date. A confirmation notice will be sent to you as soon as a determination has been made.
Yakima Town Hall has limited grants available to assist with the cost of bus transportation and/or cover the cost of an instructor's substitute teacher if needed. Please comment in the message section of the contact form if you wish to apply for this.
Thank you to our student ticket sponsors!
"This has been an extremely gratifying trip. If you'll have me back again, I'll come back.This is what's really happening in our country, not the gloom and doom coming from our politicians.It's a great relief to be here in Yakima, really to see and be a part of something like this It's refreshing to come to a pace where people still come together for a true town hall.
