Mission Statement

We build values-based leadership and civic engagement in California's youth to strengthen our democracy.

Description

California YMCA Youth & Government (Y&G) is an independently chartered YMCA that runs programs in conjunction with local YMCAs throughout the state. Program policies are set by a volunteer Board of Directors. The Board also employs a President/CEO who supervises both a small paid staff and a large volunteer staff in administering all policies and practices.

Model Legislature & Court (ML/C)
A six-month program in which high-school aged delegates, (9th-12th grades) role play the various positions of the California State Legislature and the State Court systems. Students participate by joining local YMCA delegations. Within these delegations, they create bills to be submitted to the Model Legislature, research and practice court cases, and attend the three annual Model Legislature & Court conferences.
