Youth of Today. Leaders of Tomorrow.
Youth and Government™ 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™ 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.
Our Y currently has two delegations within the Connecticut Youth and Government Program. One delegation is out of Berlin High School and the other is out of New Britain High School. Both the Berlin and New Britain delegations are ran by teachers from each school district.
Program registration is currently closed. Check back later.
