Youth Citizens Academy

Posted on April 23, 2024

The Bayside Youth Citizens Academy is a new program offered to residents of Bayside, ages 13-17. The program aims to provide a closer look at the operations of local government and the jobs of those who work for the Village.

The Academy will be comprised of five interactive learning sessions led by Village staff who will provide participants with an in-depth look at Village departments and operations including, but not limited to, police, fire and EMS, public works, emergency dispatching, elections, budgeting, and property taxes. Not only will participants learn about the operations, but also tour the facilities. Yes, that means spend time in jail, listen to 911 calls, sit in the garbage truck, and more.

Sessions will be held on specified Wednesday afternoons from 2-3:30pm.

The application for the Bayside Youth Citizens Academy is now open and will close on Friday, July 12, 2024. More information regarding specific dates, content, and applying can be found in the Youth Citizens Academy Brochure.
