Virtual Youth & Gov - Youth Legislature Seattle Y Delegation
Virtual Youth Legislature provides teens the opportunity to become familiar with the legislative process, the art of debate, and public speaking, all online from home! This non-partisan, eight-month program is designed to give teens a hands-on experience running a model state legislature. Alongside their peers, students will have the opportunity to study current issues, draft legislative bills, debate topics that are important to them, and assume the roles of various elected officials. The culmination of the program occurs in May, where teens participate in a virtual statewide model legislative session. Weekly meetings dates will be shared once groups are formed but will be held evenings 6:00-7:30 PM on Mondays, Tuesday, Wednesdays or Thursdays.
