Know Your County Government

Know Your County Government (KYCG) is a program that exposes a group of 20 high school students to Collier County Government departments and agencies. The program objectives are two-fold: to develop a cadre of informed young voters who will become active civic participants; and to show students that there are a variety of career pathways within county government for high school graduates. The 2024 program consists of three full days over a two months, during which students visit approximately 15 departments including the Supervisor of Elections, Sheriff’s Department, Tax Collector, Tax Appraiser, Traffic Management, Mosquito Control, Landfill and Toxic Waste, Wastewater Management, , Facilities Management, CAT bus services, Parks and Recreation, Collier County Public Schools, the Courthouse, Clerk of Courts, and Domestic Animal Services. The program culminates with students attending a Board of Commissioners meeting and having lunch with the Commissioners.

The program was started in 1983 and is co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Collier County, the 4-H Club, and Collier County Public Schools.
