Florida YMCA Youth In Government

College Credit Waiver

Students who participate in Florida YMCA Youth In Government programming and attend State Assembly for at least two years may be entitled to waiver from any Speech or Oral Communication Competency required by a Florida college or university.

Satisfying this requirement can put you one step closer to graduation and save you from spending your time and money on an unnecessary class.
