Youth in Government

YOUTH IN GOVERNMENT (Y & G): Grades 9-12

Youth and Government is a national program of the Y that involves thousands of teens nationwide in state-organized, model-government programs. Students have the opportunity to immerse themselves in experiential civic engagement and to practice democracy. Teens from across every state meet in their local Youth and Government groups throughout the year to discuss and debate issues that affect citizens of their state and to propose legislation. The program culminates with teens serving as delegates at their state conference, debating bills on the floor of the legislature. Organizational meeting will be held Sept. 21 @ 6:30 pm at the Y. 

Fees:  $75 YM         $99 PM 

This includes the IN Y & G Model Government Conference fees held in Indianapolis in Feb. 2018, lodging and most meals.
