YOUTH & GOVERNMENT
(YMCA of Greater Monmouth County Delegation)
The YMCA’s Youth & Government program affords high school students the opportunity to write their own legislative bill. Students spend one weekend a year with other teen teams from throughout New Jersey to debate and secure passage of their proposed bill in the actual New Jersey Senate/House Chambers in Trenton.
The young people in Youth & Government learn how to solve issues including: environmental, educational, commercial, business, community affairs, governmental, and more. They come away from the program with increased awareness and understanding of our political process, as well as heightened problem solving and critical thinking skills.
