Summer internship for youth! Learn about county government.

The first Young Supervisors Program for local high school and first year college students will be taking place from July 3 to July 28. The program will be held at the Monterey County Board of Supervisors Government Building, and it's sponsored by Supervisor Luis Alejo.

This program focuses on developing leadership skills and empowering the leaders of tomorrow by exposing them to important community issues. Students will learn about the importance of civic participation, the press, community service, the legislative process and local issues facing Monterey County. Students meet from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays, with the exception of one Tuesday throughout the course of the program.

The Young Supervisors Program is offered at no cost and it's open to high school and first year college students, who reside in Monterey County. At the end of the program, participants will be able to more effectively communicate with others, have a background in community service and organization while illustrating an understanding of the legislative process and the workings of a county supervisor. Students that complete the program will receive a special recognition certificate and a letter of recommendation from Supervisor Alejo..

Deadline to apply is June 28. Application form is available here or at the Supervisors District Office located at: 168 W. Alisal Street. Second Floor, Salinas, CA 93901 or by email at
