Youth and Government

Club Description:
Illinois Youth and Government is co-sponsored with YMCA. We reenact all aspects of the Illinois State Government in which students can participate in the many facets of the program from legislative, judicial, media, lobbyists, legislative assistants, newspaper, and even running for a higher office. Youth and Government offers a unique, fully interactive opportunity for students to truly see how government works. They are challenged to write their own bills, argue a case and write a brief for an appellate court, or present their stances on topics in a large groups scenario. We believe that democracy is learned with each generation and strive to carry on the tradition of excellence.
