Youth in Government

    Interested in discussing important current issues and simulating state government? Then Youth in Government (YIG) is for you!

    Minnesota YMCA Youth in Government programs are organized throughout the state to serve grades 8-12. Lakeville Area Community Education has partnered with the YMCA to offer YIG in Lakeville.  YIG is a simulation of state government.  Students pick an area of interest and then assume the role of legislator, lawyer, reporter, lobbyist, etc.  Students prepare legislation, debate bills, write court briefs, and conduct oral arguments or dozens of other things as they prepare for their role.  The program culminates with a fabulous four days of model assembly in January.
