About This Activity

Description

The YMCA Youth Legislature provides teens the opportunity to experience the democratic process firsthand. Throughout the year, participants learn how to research public policy issues, write legislation, practice public speaking and debating skills, and work together to achieve goals. Teens assume the roles of Senator, Representative, Lobbyist, and Press. This program culminates during the Youth Legislature where the students meet for a 4-day legislative session presided over by peers elected in a state wide election.


The fee's for this program cover the costs of multiple weekend events that are required for new members and strongly suggested for returning members. The events and dates are as follows: Training-Legislature (Sat. Dec. 6th), Mock-Legislature (Sat. Feb. 7th) and the culmination of the program is the Youth Legislature (May 6th - 9th)
