Each program cycle, Texas Youth and Government students elect ten high school officers and three middle school officers to provide youth leadership.  The YMCA requires all candidates running for these positions to adhere to the Y core values:  caring, respect, responsibility, and honesty.  Additional guidance about candidate criteria and the elections process can be found underneath the toggle below.

Please note that all of the documents and procedures serve as a reference for an in-person conference. District and State Conferences will be virtual for the 2020-2021 program year. As a result, the following documents and procedures may be modified for a virtual conference.
