Youth in Action is a hands-on learning program where students ages 12-17 can gain an overview of local government, interact with various City departments, network with peers, and earn community service hours. It’s not all work! There will be fun activities like movie nights, game nights, and more! Join us, and let’s make transformational change in our community.
