We encourage all alumni to witness how Texas Youth and Government has progressed since they left, whether they are fresh out of high school or established members of their communities! Alumni can stay in touch by connecting with us on social media, visiting or volunteering at District and State Conferences, starting a delegation, or giving financially to Youth and Government.
Recent Texas YG alums, learn more about the volunteer opportunities available to college-aged alumni below!
To maintain the fairness and integrity of the program, we ask that our newest alumni sit out at least one program year before registering to volunteer at the State Conferences. This means that college freshmen are not eligible to volunteer at the High School State Conference or the Middle School State Conference. They are welcome to sit in on and observe Conferences! We value your experience and appreciate your willingness to help. However, we want to ensure that recent high school graduates are seen as experienced YG alumni and not as peers of current participants.
Sophomore-senior alumni in college do have the opportunity to volunteer. Their volunteer capacity/responsibility grows as alumni become upperclassmen.
If you are a college sophomore, you may sign up as a General Conference volunteer for the High School State Conference. You will not be assigned to evaluator roles in any section to ensure YG alumni are seen as knowledgeable experts and not as peers of current participants.
Another volunteer opportunity for college sophomores may be at the Middle School State Conference, where you may serve as evaluators in any section or help section leaders in some other capacity. The JYG State Conference represents a great opportunity to serve as mentors to our middle school students.
If you are a college junior or senior, you may volunteer at either the High School or Middle School State Conference. You can sign up for evaluator shifts in specific sections or fill the roles of your choice.
