This year, YMCA Texas Youth and Government is celebrating 70 years of programming with more than 1150 students from all over Texas who compete as judges, lawyers, legislators, advocates, and journalists.  The Youth and Government program believes that democracy must be learned by each generation in order for it to survive and helps children and teens reach their full potential and realize their social and civic responsibilities.
