YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas


Democracy Must Be Learned By Each Generation

Youth & Government is a statewide civic education and leadership program in which schools, civic organizations and Ys involve kids in hands-on learning experiences.

YMCA Youth and Government allows middle and high school students to experience the excitement of our state government in action.

Students meet regularly as a club during the fall semester and throughout the year. Each club consists of participating students and an adult sponsor (usually a teacher) and is guided and supported by YMCA staff and volunteers. Students choose to participate in one of four areas: legislative, judicial, media, or state affairs forum. 

District 5 program registration is now open! Please click the correct link to register. If you do not have a club and would like to participate please register for our virtual club!
