What is Team BH?

Via an application process, 37 residents (35 selected by the City Council/lottery and two selected by the Beverly Hills Unified School District) are selected for each year'sTeam. Over a period of six months, Team Beverly Hills members meet on 10 occasions and actively participate in a variety of tours, presentations and demonstrations. Highlights from previous programs include:

  • Lectures by City officials and representatives (Mayor and City Councilmembers, City Treasurer, City Attorney, City Manager, City Department Heads from Building & Safety, Engineering, Emergency Services, Finance, Information Technology, Library, Planning, Public Works, Recreation & Parks, and Transportation Departments, including Police Chief and Fire Chief); as well as community, local business, and education leaders.
  • Open dialogue with City officials, City representatives and community/business leaders in order to enable and offer participants an understanding of issues, opportunities and challenges facing the City.
  • Presentations and interactive demonstrations.
  • Walking and driving tours of City facilities and public/private sites.
  • Informal gatherings (for networking between Team members, City officials and representatives, and community/business leaders).
  • Recognition and graduation program for current Team members and all Alumni members.

Objectives

  • To build a resource of involved citizens for future commissions, committees, programs and projects for the benefit of the Beverly Hills community.
  • To develop, nurture and utilize leadership potential within the community.
  • To familiarize residents with all aspects of government, business, education and service industries.
  • To involve residents in community activities, projects and endeavors.

Developed in 1996, the Team Beverly Hills program currently has 499 Alumni members. As more residents are educated through the Team Beverly Hills program, the positive results benefit the entire community as Alumni continue to seek out opportunities to participate and assist existing civic and community organizations and agencies. The long-term benefits embody an ever-expanding network and resource of community leaders, as well as assist in building a stronger bridge of mutual trust and respect between the community and its government. Many graduates volunteer at City events, sit on committees, currently serve or have served on City commissions, assist with neighborhood projects and offer invaluable service to local non-profit organizations.
