Ninth Annual Fourth District Youth in Government Day to Pair County Staff with Students

INDIO – High school students from the Coachella Valley will shadow Supervisor John J. Benoit, Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder Larry Ward, Superior Court Judge John G. Evans and 29 other county employees during Wednesday’s Ninth Annual Fourth District Youth in Government Day.

“This program offers a great opportunity for high school students to get a glimpse into the rewarding career choices in public service,” said Supervisor John J. Benoit. “I look forward to showing a student how local government impacts our daily life in the Coachella Valley.”

Supervisor Benoit’s schedule includes an 8 a.m. meeting of the Coachella Valley Enterprise Zone Authority and a noon meeting of the SunLine Transit Agency Board of Directors.

Participating county departments include: CAL FIRE, Sheriff’s Department, District Attorney’s Office, Law Offices of the Public Defender, Code Enforcement, the Community Action Partnership of Riverside County, Economic Development Agency, Environmental Health, Human Resources, the Office on Aging and Public Social Services.
