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 election process can be found underneath the toggle below.
