Welcome to the new YMCA Texas Youth and Government website!

Please note that the site is still under construction. However, we are excited to begin the 2016-2017 season! We would like to thank Texas Youth and Government alum, Jeremiah Benes, for creating our new website.  You can learn more about Jeremiah in our blog later this month.

As you get familiar with the new layout, we have provided a few helpful navigational tips below.

  • Resource Portal Tab located on the very top right hand corner of the page is the library that holds reference documents for program sections, like templates, reference videos, case material, advisor tools, and volunteer job descriptions.

  • Get Involved Tab is where users will find information about different opportunities to join our mission and get involved with Texas Youth and Government as a Participant, Advisor, Volunteer or Alumni.

  • Registration Tab is where you will find online applications to register for a program, conference or as a volunteer.

  • FAQ sheets can be found for advisors, volunteers, alumni and conferences on various pages. Please feel free to read these over and ask any further questions that arise.
