STRENGTHENING COMMUNITIES
WITH TEEN ADVOCACY


The New York State YMCA Youth & Government Program provides high school teens with the opportunity to use their
thoughts, voices and actions to make a change. The program is dedicated to teaching young people to use the democratic
process to affect change that has an impact on their individual communities and around the State.

This is a great opportunity to test problem solving and communication skills. Attend a State Conference in Albany with teens
from around the state in the State and Assembly Chambers and Judicial Courtrooms to debate proposed changes.
