This past May 5th and 6th South Middle students participated in the annual YMCA Youth and Government event in Albany.
The New York Youth And Government (YAG) is a three-day experiential learning conference in which students participate directly in a simulation of the State’s democratic process. Acting as Senators and Assembly Members, students write, debate, and vote on legislation that affects them. Officers elected by students serve as Governor, Speaker of the Assembly, President of the Senate, and are appointed to other conference leadership positions. During the entire process students are supported by YMCA professionals, teachers, advisors, alumni, parents, and volunteers. YAG offers students the opportunity to learn about a wide variety of issues, develop critical thinking skills, and articulate their beliefs while engaging constructively with those who hold like and opposing views.
Youth And Government is a national government and politics program that promotes civic literacy as well as community service.
This year our very own Olivia Harris was elected by her peers as the Governor for the YMCA 2022 Youth and Government Conference!
