Welcome to the 2018-2019 YMCA Texas Youth and Government program!   Please support our mission and this nationwide, civics engagement program to teach the fundamentals of democracy to the next generation. Our 2019 State Conference Volunteer registration is now open! The best way to support our mission is by dedicating your time to ensure the success of our State Conference. Additionally, support our mission by considering a financial gift. We’re celebrating 70 years and counting of civics programming with our student judges, lawyers, legislators, advocates, and journalists!
