Youth and Government

Youth in Government is a state program organized by the Massachusetts YMCA. In essence it is a simulation of the U.S. government; students play the role of members of government or related bodies, including legislators, executive officers, reporters, judges, and lobbyists. There are four conferences over the course of the year, three of which take place on Saturdays at various locations in Massachusetts. The last and longest conference takes place the second week in March at the State House in Boston. Bromfield’s Youth in Government branch would meet on a weekly or biweekly basis in order to prepare for these conferences.

One of the goals of Youth in Government is to promote and reward good character in the context of today's politics, stressing honesty, compassion, and tolerance. Furthermore, this program encourages civic involvement among today's youth in an academically rigorous environment. Participants will address current domestic and international issues from the position of well-informed government officials as they work together to solve a variety of social, economic, political, and environmental problems.
