About

Welcome to the 2017 YMCA General Assembly of Youth in Government!

This unique program gives middle school and high school students from all over Colorado an opportunity to speak up — and stand out — with leadership skills, initiative, and intelligence that they will need in the future.

Through Youth in Government and the three-day General Assembly, these students will build the confidence to lead others, speak out for legislation that they write themselves, and learn what it takes to create and pass the laws that govern our communities — all right here at the State’s Capitol.

This 50-year-old YMCA tradition is the only program of its kind that offers this type of experience and access to Colorado’s legislative offices.
