Welcome to the 2019-2020 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 2019-2020 program registration is now open as is our volunteer registration!  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!
