Youth & Government is a YMCA program that offers an opportunity for high school students to explore their political interests through intense debate over matters of the state government. Established in 1936, Youth & Government began as a teen leadership program to help empower, inspire, and motivate teens across the country. Youth and Government has grown significantly over the years, expanding to more than 50,000 teens across 39 states. Your tax-deductible contribution will go towards empowering youth from all walks of life and encouraging them to be active citizens through the Youth and Government Program.
