The Charlotte County Commission has launched the Fall 2024 Junior Commission youth civic education program.

Junior Commission participants will learn the functions of their local government by meeting with commissioners, touring county facilities, attending a commission meeting, pre-agenda meeting, workshop, code enforcement special magistrate hearing and holding a Junior Commission mock commission meeting.

The Junior Commission program is open to high school juniors and seniors enrolled full-time in a Charlotte County high school or accredited home school program.

Applications and program schedules are available through the junior commission website here.

The application deadline is Aug. 1, and the selected students will be announced on Aug. 14.

The program will run from Sept. 12 to Nov. 19.
