We're shaping tomorrow's leaders today! Youth and Government is a 7-month learn-by-doing experience that teaches the values of democracy by bringing together a cross-section of Illinois high school students. Students will experience government first-hand and learn how to solve community problems and debate and discuss issues with their peers.
Area high schools that we serve: Belleville East, Belleville West, Althoff, Cahokia, O'Fallon, and Governor French Academy.
Recruitment/Registration meeting is August 30 at 6pm at Althoff Catholic High School. Contact Will Welsh at firstname.lastname@example.org or 618.233.1243 with any questions. Visit ilymcayg.org for more info on this program.
