Peoria County's summer Civic Leadership Program is a free civic program that offers local high school students a unique opportunity to learn more about county government through hands-on activities at various County facilities. All Peoria County high school students are eligible to take the one-day course, including spring graduates and fall freshmen; class size is limited to 15 participants however. The program is June 9 from 8:15 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. and includes tours of the Juvenile Detention Center, County Jail, and Emergency Management Agency.
Participants will also meet elected and appointed officials and have lunch with the Sheriff's command staff. Students participating in the summer program will participate in a mock emergency preparedness exercise, inspect a county bridge, share dessert with residents of Heddington Oaks, and watch a K-9 demonstration. Most importantly, they will learn the responsibilities and services of county government. For a complete schedule or to download an application, click here.
