City Academy for Youth Aug. 20-24
Calling all youth leaders of Minneapolis: Have you wondered where your tax money goes, how to rent or buy a home, or how to work at the City? The City of Minneapolis invites you to bring your questions and meet your local government.
The City Academy for Youth offers youths entering or enrolled in high school a behind-the-scenes look at Minneapolis City government.
Youths will learn about City government, finances, mental health, affordable housing and Minneapolis’ youth employment opportunities during presentations from the Health Department, 911, Police, Community Planning and Economic Development, and Civil Rights. The series will conclude with a meet and greet with local elected leaders.
City Academy for Youth lasts for five days, noon-2:30 p.m. Aug. 20-24, in various locations throughout Minneapolis City Hall. Free lunch and bus tokens will be provided to the participants. Sponsored by the Neighborhood and Community Relations Department.
