YOUTH & GOVERNMENT

In the Youth & Government program, students recreate the various bodies of the California State Legislature and State Court System by interacting with other teens throughout California and attending four state-wide conferences.

Teens attend weekly meetings, learn to create bills, research and practice court cases while perfect their public speaking and debate skills.
