Alameda County is now accepting applications for its 2020 Youth Leadership Academy, a free program for high school juniors and seniors interested in learning about local government.
Those enrolled in the program will participate in five Saturday morning sessions, in September and October, to learn about county government programs, meet with elected officials and county staff, and network with other students from throughout the county.
Sessions will be held at different county facilities on Sept. 12, 19, and 26, and Oct. 10 and 24.
Applications will be accepted through Aug. 7, although space is limited. To apply, go to www.acgov.org/youthleadership/.
