Youth & Government is a model legislative program for teens in grades 9-12. Students prepare to go toe to toe with other kids from all over the state in a model legislative conference at the end of the year held at the MA State House in Boston. Delegates will spend the weekend presenting and helping to judge the passing of their bills and the bills of fellow students!
There are many ways to participate in Youth & Government. Delegates choose to represent one of three government branches (Legislative, Judicial, Executive). Each branch focuses on delivering impact according to the branch they represent. Whether you are interested in debating or prefer to research, write and report, Youth & Government has a place for everyone!
