Welcome to the 2017-2018 YMCA Texas Youth and Government program!  Congratulations to all delegates and adult supporters on a successful State Conference season.  You can review our award winners here (JYG) and here (High School).  Please support our mission and this nationwide, civics engagement program to teach the fundamentals of democracy to the next generation.  Consider a financial gift, and make sure to stay in touch about volunteer opportunities at our November 2018 District Conferences and January 2019 High School State Conference.  We’re celebrating 70 years and counting of civics programming with our student judges, lawyers, legislators, advocates, and journalists!
