STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"The Youth & Government program is a year long simulation of the real Pennsylvania state government.   Hundreds of high school students each year participate as representatives, senators, lawyers, justices, cabinet members, lobbyists, and reporters.   Students conduct research on the topics they will discuss and debate, learn the rules of the legislature or the courts, work on their public speaking skills and apply this acquired knowledge and skills at the three statewide events.

 

It is noteworthy to point out that the Youth & Government program is not a one-to-one simulation of the Pennsylvania legislative process.  The timeframe is radically different (in most cases) than the real work.  While the Model Legislative Weekend occurs over four days, it usually takes months or

years for bills to get passed or for the Supreme Court to hear a case.  However, the fun, challenge, and educational value of the experience is not diminished in the least!
 

Purpose of the Program

The purpose of the program is to bring the workings of state government alive to students.  It creates a hands-on opportunity for students to discuss current state issues with state administrators, elected officials, and students from 40 schools and YMCA's throughout the state.   Club members are extensively trained over a school-year program cycle to fulfill various roles at the Model Legislature Conference."
