YOUTH & GOVERNMENT
Model Legislature & Court (Grades 9 - 12)
Open to All High School Students
The Y invites you to join other teenagers from your community for this amazing program! For 67 years, California YMCA Model Legislature & Court has brought together high school students for this hands-on, unforgettable experience. Participants are trained in various government and court roles.
The California YMCA Model Legislature & Court teaches the values of democracy by creating citizen leaders from high school students, providing them with hands-on opportunities to experience government first hand, and to learn how to solve community problems through the democratic process. The program uses a variety of activities to build, encourage, and strengthen life assets and character traits that will help high school youth become involved, responsible adults.
