Youth in Government
Youth In Government is a collaboration between the YMCA and local high schools that provides an exciting "hands on" experience in the mechanics of the state legislative and judicial process. Each year, students travel to Tallahassee to gain real life experience of the inner workings of our legislative and judicial systems in the legislative chambers of the state capitol and the Florida Supreme Court. Youth In Government operates from August through February, at Northeast, Shorecrest Preparatory, and St. Petersburg High Schools.
For more information please call 727-328-9622.
