Youth and Government(tm) is a national program of the Y that involves thousands of teens nationwide in state-organized, model-government programs. Students from every corner of the U.S. have the opportunity to immerse themselves in experiential civic engagement and to, quite literally, practice democracy.

Teens from across every state meet in their local Youth and Government(tm) groups throughout the year, to discuss and debate issues that affect citizens of their state and to propose legislation. The program culminates with teens serving as delegates at their state conference, debating bills on the floor of the legislature.

Through our leadership and academic enrichment programs such as Mentoring, Youth in Government, and Model United Nations, the Y makes sure that every child has an opportunity to envision and pursue a positive future, and take an active role in strengthening his or her future.
