Youth in Government Day

The first Youth in Government Day was organized in the 1970s under the first County Executive, Daniel T. Murphy, with the goal of developing young adults into future leaders. For 15 consecutive years, Youth in Government Day has been organized by the Oakland County Board of Commissioners, with the enthusiastic support of current County Executive L. Brooks Patterson and other County elected officials. The program continues to focus on connecting young people with local government, encouraging them to engage and explore the ways their participation can positively impact their lives and communities.
