Youth & Government is a non-partisan, student-led civic education experience that focuses on educating high school students about state government. Unlike many other civic programs that tend to be competition-based, Youth & Government focuses on creating a platform for civil debate on complex problems and building collaboration between students of diverse backgrounds to seek solutions to challenges we see in our communities. This program addresses needs for increased student engagement and leadership.
Youth & Government offers legislative, judicial, and executive branches of government as well as a media program. The annual program culminates in a three-day conference in Santa Fe at the State Capitol in April. Scholarships are available based on financial need.
