Youth and Government

So I’m in this club at the YMCA and its called Youth and Government. The mission of California YMCA Youth and Government is to ensure leadership, democracy, and the YMCA Core Values of Honesty, Caring, Respect and Responsibility must be learned by each generation. It’s a Model Legislature/Court. And in from September to February we train and write bills, and go to Camp Roberts (San Luis Obispo)  where we spend 4 days there to prepare from our big trip in Sacramento February 14, 2009 (same date every year) to take over the capital. This program is life changing and mind opening, and its amazing to see how youth can do so much and have such great voices. And it is an amazing opportunity to be heard, to have a voice. There is no bashing and harassment about peoples opinions. We all respect everyone, and its also cool because it opens your mind to other people’s opinions and why they think certain things.

Our MOTTO: “Democracy must be learned by each generation.”
