Every year, the Board of Commissioners hosts high school students from across Oakland County for Youth in Government Day. This exciting program encourages students to learn about, engage with and participate in their local government – and maybe even consider a future career at Oakland County! Attendees have the opportunity to interact with Oakland County elected officials and judges and learn more about their role in the democratic process.
On February 3, 2021, more than 70 students attended the BOC's first-ever virtual Youth in Government Day. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event was reformatted to connect students with county leadership while remaining physically distant. Read more about the day here.
