From September to February, California YMCA Youth and Government runs the MLC. The MLC has been the state?s premier youth leadership and civic development program since 1948. The MLC creates a six month learn-by-doing experience that teaches the values of democracy by bringing together a cross-section of the state?s high school students. This program provides them with the opportunity to experience government first-hand and to learn how to solve community problems through the democratic process as well as debate and discuss issues with their peers from throughout California.
