Welcome to Texas Youth and Government
To help teenagers become responsible citizens and future leaders of our nation.
To create an environment in which students can increase their political awareness and understanding, while learning the meaning of social action through an actual experience in government.
YMCA Youth & Government is a national program of the YMCA that involves thousands of teenagers nationwide in state-organized model-government programs. Students from every corner of the U.S. have the opportunity to immerse themselves in experiential civic engagement and to, quite literally, practice democracy.
