Twenty local students will get a behind the scenes look at local government during Youth in Government Day 2016.
On February 10, members of the Pocatello/Chubbuck Mayors’ Youth Advisory Council will be given the chance to see the inner workings of two City departments. They will participate in hands-on activities and find out what it takes for the different pieces of the City to operate. Students will be asked to do everything from airfield inspections at Pocatello Regional Airport to putting together meals for animals at the Pocatello Zoo.
“These are the students that will grow into our future leaders,” said Mayor Brian Blad. “We hope this will be a valuable learning experience for all involved and we believe their time spent with City officials will be fun and memorable”
The departments that were chosen were picked by the members of the Youth Advisory Council. After spending the morning in Pocatello, the students will spend some time with the City of Chubbuck and then return to Pocatello City Hall for a wrap-up.
