Students and Government Day was created to assist Torrance students in the 8th Grade in developing an effective civics education. Students who recognize and understand how local government works become more informed and involved citizens and voters. By participating in Students & Government Day, students learn the roles of the City Council and city staff by conducting a portion of a City Council meeting, learning the mechanics of self-governance, and participating at the local level.

Students and Government Day helps students to:

  • Develop an understanding of local city government
  • Promote participation in community affairs
  • Demonstrate that local government can and does affect our lives
  • Emphasize that we can effect change at the local level
