Youth & Government

Youth and government


A six month program in which high school delegates role play various positions of the California State Legislature and Court Systems. Students participate by joining local delegations to create bills, research and practice court cases, and attend the Model Legislature and Court conference.

Y&G teaches the values of democracy by creating citizen leaders from a cross-section of the state's high school population providing them with the opportunity to experience government first hand and learn how to solve community problems through the democratic process.
