Every year, we participate in Constitution Day by hosting a fundraiser to benefit the YMCA Texas Youth and Government program! Constitution Day is on September 17 and was created to honor the adoption of the United States Constitution. This document remains one of the most important documents in American history and continues to govern how the country is run. The YMCA Texas Youth and Government program teaches students about the Untied States Constitution and how it guides our government. When students create policies to discuss in the state legislature or prepare arguments to argue in front of the Chief Justice, the Constitution serves as the first rule book they turn to.
Because of the importance of the Untied States Constitution not only to our government, but to our students learning about civic engagement and leadership, it makes sense why we would want to celebrate Constitution Day in style. Please consider making a donation at the bottom of the page. Your donation doesn’t just support our program, but it supports the learning of our students about just how important our government is and how documents like the Untied States Constitution continue to influence our lives over 200 years later. Please see the video below to watch a message from our 2018-2019 Youth Governor, Sharif Long.
