Youth and Government Informational Meeting Feb 27 at 5:30pm

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.

The Cook County Youth Agency Coalition is looking forward to having the first delegation this fall. In the meantime, we are seeking adult leaders that would be interested in being a co-host of the program or a volunteer to chaperone events or visit with the group throughout the year. We will be holding an informational meeting on February 27th at 5:30pm at the YMCA. Come learn more about becoming a volunteer for this great program.
