On March 7, Hanover Township Supervisor Brian P. McGuire spoke to civics classes at Elgin High School and Streamwood High School to promote Township government during Local Government Week in Illinois. Over 90 students learned firsthand about the services and programs the Township provides to its 100,000 residents in the communities of Streamwood, Elgin, Bartlett, Hanover Park, Hoffman Estates and Schaumburg.

"This was a great opportunity for us to get in to the schools and not only promote the Township and its services, but also to explain how important it is to participate in local government," said Brian P. McGuire, Hanover Township Supervisor. "We appreciated the opportunity to partner with Elgin High School and Streamwood High School and hope to talk to more classes next year."

Students were presented with information on the different departments at Hanover Township and the programs and services they provide to the community. Many were surprised to hear that the Township Food Pantry serves over 1,200 families a month or that the Office of Community Health provided over 1,500 screenings and lab services to residents in 2012.

The students were also encouraged to apply to serve on the Township's Community on Youth, a volunteer committee that advises the Township Board on the provision of programs and services to combat and prevent juvenile delinquency.
