Florida YMCA Youth In Government

Jr. Assembly

Each year, participants of our Jr. YIG program may attend the Junior Assembly. Assembly delegates take on the role of state Senators or Representatives as they guide their own ideas (in the form of legislation) through the YIG’s model legislative process.

While staying in cabins, delegates will work with High School Mentors on concepts varying from public speaking to civic responsibility.

Coupled with a healthy dose of leadership development and the core values (caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility), the Friday - Sunday experience provides these delegates with a glimpse of what awaits them in high school.
