Youth in Government
Student-run program with lots of great leadership opportunities.
Participants learn the principles of a democratic society by engaging with their peers in the process of civic action. Form your own opinions; find your voice!
Sharpen leadership skills through public speaking, debate, mock trial, bill writing, and the formation of a press corps. Meetings start in the Fall of 2019 to prepare for our weekend trip to the State Capitol in March of 2020, where we simulate a mock government in the actual seats of our Legislators and Supreme Court Justices.
