In this spirit, high school student participants support middle-school programming while high school graduates have opportunities offer valuable support to the large Y&G programs and annual conferences.

Throughout the cycle of opportunities, these young leaders grow confidence while learning collaboration and civic responsibility.  Specific skills introduced, enhanced and reinforced throughout all Y&G programming include:

  • Leadership Skills
  • Public Speaking
  • Research & Writing
  • Core Values & Teamwork
  • Study Skills
  • Critical Thinking
  • Understanding of Civic Engagement
  • Addressing Issues on Statewide & National Issues

As young participants grow in their understanding of civic engagement, they are also investing time to gain the skills and knowledge that will shape their lives and our society’s future.
