United Township High School students participated in the YMCA Youth & Government Conference in Springfield over this past weekend at the State Capitol.
Illinois YMCA Youth & Government is a leadership development program for high school students. Participants immerse themselves in all aspects of Illinois government by assuming roles of legislators, attorneys, executive officials, lobbyists, press members and more. The culmination of each program year is a 3 day conference in which students debate issues using the actual Illinois Capitol and Supreme Court facilities.
Congratulations to the students for their engagement and hard work! Learn more about the YMCA Youth & Government Conference here.
