Every year, the Board of Commissioners hosts high school students from across Oakland County for Youth in Government Day. This exciting program will encourage students to learn about, engage with and participate in their local government – and maybe even consider a future career at Oakland County! Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with Oakland County elected officials and judges, and watch an exciting demonstration by an Oakland County Sheriff K-9 unit. Eligible students also have the opportunity to register to vote.
Youth in Government Day will be held on Wednesday, February 5, 2020 from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the Board of Commissioners' Auditorium, located in the County Courthouse at 1200 North Telegraph Road (Building 12E) in Pontiac. Registration is required and is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Schools may bring up to ten (10) students and up to two (2) chaperones. Contact Haley Hansen at (248) 858-1092 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to register.
