Youth and Government program is a national program of the YMCA that involves thousands of teens nationwide in state-organized, model-government programs. Students have the opportunity to immerse themselves in experiential civic engagement and toquite literally, practice democracy. Teens from across every state meet in their local Youth and Government groups throughout the year to discuss and debate issues that affect citizens of their state and to propose legislation. The program culminates with teens serving as delegates at the California state conference, debating bills on the floor of the legislature.

The Stuart C Gildred Family YMCA is located at 900 N Refugio Rd in Santa Ynez.  For more information about the event please contact Scott Arellano, Sports and Youth Development Director, at 805.686.2037 ext 224 or
