Summer @ City Hall

Summer @ City Hall (S@CH) is a six-week summer learning experience that provides incoming High School Juniors and Seniors the opportunity to learn about local government processes, develop leadership skills and how to become an active member of their community.

During the program, students work on a project based learning assignment called Project City Hall that requires them to engage in small group activities to identifying a real-world problem or issue that is being experienced within Sacramento.  Students are given the opportunity to develop an Awareness Campaign around that subject matter which includes a visual billboard and a video public service announcement (PSA). These Awareness Campaigns are presented to the City Council by the student groups each year at the conclusion of the program.

The Youth & Community Connect (YCC) App was selected as one of the projects this summer.  View the S@CH student created and produced YCC App Public Service Announcement.
