Let Your Voice Be Heard
YMCA Youth and Government offers opportunities for teens to get involved in their communities and learn how to make their voices heard about issues that are important to them. Students meet in their school clubs during the fall semester, learning parliamentary procedure and preparing their measures. All delegates participate in all-day state Pre-Legislative Training on a Saturday in January. The program's culminating conference is held in February over three days from Thursday morning until Saturday afternoon, at the Oregon State Capitol in Salem.
