YOUTH & GOVERNMENT

EQUIPPING A GENERATION TO IMPROVE OUR NATION

Democracy must be learned by each generation. YMCA 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.  Model United Nations in also an option.

In November, clubs compete at District Conference, and the top individuals and teams advance to the State Conferences in January and February in Austin.  Model United Nations Assembly takes place in April. To sign up for District Conference, please first pay the Youth & Government Fee using the blue button below.  Then click the purple District Conference Registration to complete the process.
