Youth In GovernmentAll kids have great potential. At the Y, we work every day to help them set and achieve personal and educational goals. Thousands of children and teens build skills and confidence as they explore new interests and passions through the Y. Leadership and academic enrichment programs—including Black and Latino Achievers Program, Youth in Government, and college preparation—along with our dedicated efforts to close the academic achievement gap for low-income youth ensure that every child has an opportunity to envision and pursue the best possible future.
