Florida YMCA Youth In Government

Middle School (Jr. YIG)

Much like their high school counterparts, Jr. YIG’s middle school delegates form local chapters affiliated with their local YMCA branch.

However, high school students act in the role of mentor and student advisor, teaching these future YIG rockstars all that they need to know! This unique setup makes our Jr. YIG program the ultimate service-learning project.

6th, 7th, & 8th grade students who are part of a Jr. YIG Chapter may attend the annual Jr. Assembly.

Jr. YIG chapters are currently set-up at select YMCAs and middle schools across the state. These chapters may be a part of a Sr. YIG chapter or exist on their own.
