TEENS AND GOVERNMENT (ages 13-18)
YMCA’s Teens & Government program teaches the values of democracy by creating citizen leaders from a cross-section of our community’s high school population, providing them with the opportunity to experience local government firsthand and to learn how to solve community problems through the democratic process. The program also helps develop within these youth an attitude of self-help and self-confidence for their personal futures.
