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.
