West Suburban YMCA starting new delegation to Youth and Government Program; attend an info session October 4, 5:00 p.m.

The West Suburban YMCA invites parents and students to an information session on Wednesday, October 4, at 5:00 p.m., in the WSYMCA Computer Lab, introducing the Youth and Government Program. Get answers to your questions and get an in-depth look at the program!

The Youth and Government Program is a nationally organized YMCA program providing high school age teens the opportunity to participate in a model government. Participants, known as delegates, will work in their branch of interest (judicial, legislative, lobbyist branch, and press corps) to produce a piece of work in the form of a bill, legal brief, or news article. Weekly sessions held at the WSYMCA will provide instruction and preparation leading up to the Pre-Legislative meetings that host delegations all throughout the Commonwealth. Pre-Legislative meetings held in October, November, January, and February will provide education and training for the delegates as they prepare for the three-day Annual Conference held at the Massachusetts State House in March.

To learn more or to enroll in the information session, contact Jeremy Smith at jeremys@wsymca.org.
