Your middle or high schooler has the opportunity to experience a program that gets students more involved in government and learning the process of how it works. The Door County YMCA Youth in Government program has three sections that cover the legislature, judicial, and press corps. Program and Innovative Director Tyler Powell says the program's success over the years culminates with a spring trip to Madison.
The Youth in Government is open to any Door County student from 7th to 12th grade. An informational meeting will be held at the Sturgeon Bay YMCA Program Center on Monday, October 3 at 6:30 pm for parents and students interested in finding out more about the Youth in Government organization. You can listen to the entire interview with Tyler Powell about the program and the annual trip in March to the Wisconsin State Capitol on the Y Wednesday podcast page here.
