YMCA Youth & Government District Conference - Volunteers Needed

11/11/2017 - 8:00am

YMCA Youth & Government is a statewide civic engagement and leadership development program in which YMCAs, schools, and community organizations involve students in hands-on learning experiences.

Students form clubs at their schools or local Y facilities and participate in a mock state government. Clubs meet throughout the fall semester and then gather for the District Conference with teens and clubs from across the region.

This year's District Conference will be Saturday, November 11 at Hays High School (map), and we need your help as volunteers. More than 350 middle and high school students from Austin, Leander, San Antonio, Corpus Christi, and Waco will converge on Hays High School for a full day of competition as judges, lawyers, legislators, advocates, and journalists. We need your assistance to ensure a smooth and high quality experience.
