Free program for area high school students started Jan. 23

CLEARWATER - Area teens get an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at county government in Teens Behind the Scenes, a free program for local high school students presented by Pinellas County’s Youth Advisory Committee.

Presentations take place once a month over the next five months. Students may attend one or more, or all five sessions. Sessions take place Wednesdays from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m.

The first program, Survivor … Public Works, was Jan. 23 and allowed teens to check out the private side of public works and explore traffic signal control, road maintenance and more.

Upcoming programs include:

- Feb. 27: Undercover Paws - Enjoy a visit to Animal Services and learn about pet care and animal control.

- March 20: 911 101 - Get a close-up look at the Pinellas County emergency medical services system and participate in a first-responders exercise.

- April 24: Most Wanted - Take a tour of the Pinellas County Jail.

- May 22: Law and Order - Meet representatives from the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office, State Attorney’s Office, Public Defender’s Office and a county/circuit court judge.

Teens can also share some TV time with the Pinellas County commissioners at an awards night ceremony in the fifth floor Assembly Room of the Pinellas County Courthouse.

Registration deadline for each session is one week before the program date. Class sizes are limited. To register, visit 2013teensbehindthescenes.eventbrite.com.
