Youth and Government

Put your values in action. Meet new friends and mentors that will help you learn and grow while becoming familiar with the legislative process, the art of debate, and public speaking. Alongside your peers, the YMCA Youth and Government program will provide you with the opportunity to debate topics and bills that are important to you. Students learn about state government through an experiential process where young people become ” Senators, Representatives, Lobbyists, and Reports. In May, teens take over the Capitol building and debate their own bills! This is a fee based program.

October-May, Wednesdays 6-7:30PM *Meets at Bellevue Y*
