The City of Huntington Beach has designated Thursday, April 19 as "Youth In Government Day." Youth In Government Day was established as a yearly event to increase high school students’ understanding and involvement in municipal government and provide city government staff an opportunity to hear the opinions and questions of today's youth. The program is open to all high school students who are residents of Huntington Beach. The day will include a two-hour internship for each student to meet on a one-to-one basis with a staff counterpart from a city department.
