Youth & Government

Guilderland YMCA

YMCA Youth & Government is a national program of the Y that involves thousands of teens nationwide in state-organized, model-governments programs. Teens will meet once a week in their local Youth & Government groups throughout the year to discuss and debate issues that affect citizens of New York State and to propose legislation. Participants conduct extensive research on their issue and write a document based on their findings. Local attorneys and government officials are consulted during this process. After the documents have been presented at the District conference, they are sent to the New York State Youth & Government Model Legislative Program. Every spring, participants travel to Albany to implement the Youth & Government program events in the authentic surroundings of the State Capitol, the Legislative Office Building, and the Judicial Building.
