Words from participants:
"Since I have started participating in this program, I have learned to be a better student, how to be a good communicator and how to get along with different kinds of individual."
"I have learned to overcome my fear of speaking in front of people."
"I have learned so much from participating in this program. I gained experiences that are truly amazing for a high school student to be involved in. This program has also helped me to decide what I want to do in my future. I plan on attending college next year, majoring in political science, and working towards Law School."
Providing a powerful, impactful, and memorable experience for a teen, who would not be able to participate in Youth and Governement, is important to me and I hope you. Youth and Government in California and across the country has made life-changing impact in many young people.
California YMCA Youth & Government has provided outstanding statewide educational and social experiences close to 100,000 middle and high school youth for more than 70 years.
Your gift will continue to provide these powerful experiences to teens that participate in Youth and Government.
I have had the pleasure of working and volunteering with teens for over twenty years. I have been amazed and humbled by the students that participate in this outstanding program. I have been so proud to see what they accomplish as adults. Your gift has a lasting impact.
