Health & Fitness | Dakota Alliance Youth and Government


  • Youth and Government™ is a national program of the Y that involves thousands of teens nationwide in state-organized, model-government programs.
  • Students from every corner of the U.S. have the opportunity to immerse themselves in experiential civic engagement and to, quite literally, practice democracy.
  • Teens from across every state meet in their local Youth and Government™ groups throughout the year to discuss and debate issues that affect citizens of their state and to propose legislation.
  • The program culminates with teens serving as delegates at their state conference, debating bills on the floor of the legislature.
