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 sections: Legislative, Judicial, Media, or State Affairs Forum.
