Mayor’s Youth Day is an annual event held in the City of Chesapeake, which pairs high school seniors with City officials. This event not only gives these students an opportunity to receive a first-hand look at how the City operates, but also to participate in that operation. City employees serve as mentors while students assume the employees’ roles for the day.
Students are chosen from their schools based on academic achievement, leadership, and extracurricular activities. Student Council Association Sponsors select student participants. Most of them are members of their student government associations, or have taken a government class.
Each of the public and private high schools in Chesapeake are asked to provide students to fill the positions of our City officials and staff who serve as mentors for the students.
Students spend the morning, lunch, and early afternoon with their mentors. Lunch provides a special opportunity to discuss the students’ perspective of city government and other interesting and relevant topics.
During the afternoon, the student Council Members hold a Student City Council Meeting in the City Council Chamber within City Hall.
An agenda item is presented during the council session. The Student City Council meeting is the culmination of the day’s activities, and is attended by all participating students, City and School Board officials, and City and School System department heads.
As the day ends, students are asked to evaluate the day’s activities, and are then transported back to their respective schools.
Community Programs, a division of Human Services, coordinates Mayor’s Youth Day in conjunction with the Mayor, City Council & City Clerk, Chesapeake Public Schools, and the City Manager’s staff.
