Twenty students from Solano County Office of Education’s Solano Youth Coalition participated in an Observer Corps program training Saturday and mock City Council meeting.
The opportunity was coordinated in partnership with the League of Women Voters Solano County chapter and Suisun City. The League of Women Voters provided the program training. This is the first time the training has been offered to Solano County youth.
The goal of the training, according to a Solano Office of Education press release, was to provide local youth an opportunity to engage civically and learn about community issues and government laws/policies. The program promotes transparent and accountable government while connecting elected or appointed officials with constituents.
