What is Michigan Youth in Government?
YMCA Michigan Youth in Government is a student-led, student run model government for teens across the state of Michigan. The statewide organization provides the content and resources for delegations to organize locally from Sept to April to prepare for regional and statewide events. The program year starts with a regional Fall Training Conference and culminates in Lansing Conference in the spring. The high school program includes various program areas in which students can get involved. These program areas model the systems that make our Democracy run. Our motto is Democracy must be learned by each generation. Click the links below to learn more today, there is truly something for everyone!
