Youth in Government
Students from our local high schools spend a morning job-shadowing local government staff and first-responders to get a first hand look into the City Government operations. They are then invited to our luncheon, where they introduce themselves to the club and are treated to a State of the City program presented by the City Manager.
Students from International House
For more than 50 years our club has partnered with International House at UC Berkeley to provide the opportunity for international students to experience small town California and stay with a typical American family. Students visit landmark institutions in the community and are treated to an old fashioned “Pot Luck” dinner party.
Students of the Month
Livermore, Del Valle, and Vineyard high schools’ staffs select outstanding students to be honored at a luncheon each month. The students receive a plaque and gifts from local businesses. Pictured is India D’Souza, Outstanding Student in October of this year, with LHS Principal Vicky Skudder.
Sunflower Hill is an organization which focuses on children and adults with special needs, primarily on the autism spectrum.
