What is a Campus Y?
Campus YMCA’s develop cause driven leaders while connecting campus to community.
Youth and Government
Indiana YMCA Youth and Government programs develop personal growth and encourage life-long, responsible citizenship by providing experiential learning for young people and providing public forums to recognize the abilities and capabilities of youth.
Youth and Government programs develop and promote:
- An understanding of local, state, national and international concerns;
- Research, study and debate on public issues;
- Exploration of careers in public service;
- Interaction with adult and youth leaders involved in decision-making processes;
- An understanding of political systems and the forum they provide for the effective and peaceful resolution of issues and concerns;
- Appreciation for the diversity of viewpoints on public issues and a concurrent respect for ideas, beliefs and the positions of others; and
- Demonstration of citizenship responsibilities and leadership roles essential to the health of participatory democracy.
Want to learn more about how you or or youth can get involved? Contact Candice Tatum at firstname.lastname@example.org.
