As high school students increasingly begin to prepare for their future careers, they are often confronted by their blatant lack of experience. Making a commitment to any career is a daunting task, and students are not prepared to make this decision. To encourage greater exposure to these fields, the City of Pleasanton and the Pleasanton Unified School District are once again organizing its annual Youth in Government Day.
High school students will receive the opportunity to shadow different professionals and city leaders within Pleasanton. Students will begin the day at the Firehouse Arts Center with a continental breakfast. They will hear from City Manager Nelson Fialho, Pleasanton Mayor Jerry Thorne, and Interim PUSD Superintendent Micaela Ochoa. A catered lunch will be provided, serving as a networking opportunity for students. They will be able to shadow two different city staff members during the day.
Job shadows may include City Manager, School Administrators, Operations Service Center, Police Department, Fire Department, Community Services, Human Resources, Library Services, Civic Arts, City Planning, Information Technology, Business Services, and more.
Students from Foothill, Amador Valley, and Village can apply for this program. It will be held on Wednesday, March 22, 2017 from 8:30 a.m. – 3 p.m. Applications are now available online at bit.ly/YIG2017, the school administration offices, or Ptownlife.org/yig2017. Applications are due Friday, February 24.
