"Democracy Must Be Learned by Each Generation!" - Dr. Earle Hawkins

  •  What is Youth in Government?

    Youth in Government (YIG) is a national program of the YMCA that involves thousands of teens nationwide in state-organized, model-government programs.

    Students have the opportunity to immerse themselves in experimental civic engagement and to, quite literally, practice Democracy in Judicial and Legislative tracks.
