From wanting to be the Mayor, to asking questions about where our sewers drain to, kids have all sorts of questions that City staff can help answer! That's why we've created Galveston Kidvesity! Teachers can set up a tour of City Hall with our Public Information Office for their individual classes. Prior to arriving, staff will ask for a list of students names to make sure that we have name tags and certificates ready for each student. We will then meet you and your class on the steps of City Hall and the tour will begin! Each department within City Hall will meet with each class and staff will give them the highlights of what their department does as well as answer any questions. At the end students will have an opportunity to answer a 3 question quiz and earn a Kidversity graduate certificate!
This program teaches students not only about the role that city government plays in their every day life, but also about the importance of getting involved in local leadership within your community!
