Colorado YMCA Youth in Government is a statewide youth educational program involving more than 200 high school students at the Colorado State Capitol each November. The core purpose of this highly regarded program is exemplified in the motto “Democracy Must Be Learned By Each Generation.” The program is designed to give students the opportunity to participate directly in the major aspects of state government. Students can run for office to become elected youth officials, assess constitutionality as a justice or lawyer, debate legislation as a member of the Senate or House or work as a reporter with the print and broadcast media. You can learn more about the program at www.coloradoyig.com.

We are very thankful for the support of ColoradoPols for the program!
