About This Activity

Description

High school students and 8th graders experience the legislative process firsthand. They learn about state government through an experiential process where they "become" of Senators, Representatives, Lobbyists, and Reporters. In May, participants visit the Capitol Building in Olympia to debate their own bills!

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)
