About Youth & Government
Youth & Government is dedicated to teens. For over 70 years we have empowered teens to find their voice and develop the skills needed to fulfill their potential.
The future success of our communities rests in the hands of the next generation. By nurturing innovation, fostering a sense of responsibility, and building leadership skills we ensure our future leaders will be active and engaged servant leaders.
Y&G teens are leaders in their communities. They sit on boards, volunteer in schools, and educate their friends and neighbors about local issues. They know they have a voice and understand the importance of sharing their opinions and ideas.
Discuss Healthy Alternatives
Teens in Y&G programs look at how laws and public policy effect the health and well being of citizens. From issues surrounding neighborhood sidewalks to the national healthcare debate, teens discuss alternatives and solutions to some of the largest issues facing community health in our state and nation
