Take an Inside Look at County Government
Have you ever seen a medic respond to a heart attack? Do you know how large a traffic signal is or what it’s like to be behind bars? Teens Behind the Scenes is a new program that takes an exclusive look at the inner workings of Pinellas County government. Once a month from January to May, teens go behind-the-scene to experience first-hand what goes into keeping the county running.
Presented by the county’s Youth Advisory Committee, Teens Behind the Scenes is created by students for students. The sessions will meet from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the site of the featured department.
