Democracy must be learned by each generation! Have you ever had a great idea for a new law or how to improve one? Youth & Government is a three-day learning conference in which students participate directly in a simulation of the democratic process! Serve as a mock senator or representative, write & debate your own bill, & learn how your voice can be heard in this 10 week afterschool program. At the conclusion of this program students will travel to Columbus where they will take part directly in our State Government with other students across Ohio in our State House chambers & committees. Youth & Government offers students the opportunity to learn about a wide variety of issues, develop critical thinking skills, and articulate their beliefs while engaging constructively with those who hold like and opposing views. An informational meeting will be held Thursday Jan 24th from 2:45-3:15pm in room A200
