Leaders of Our Community
This evening we hosted our Annual Youth and Government™ Celebration. We want to send our love and many thanks to all of the students, volunteers, donors, Hobart Community Fund, Hobart Education Foundation, Hobart Kiwanis Club and the School City of Hobart that help make this program successful year after year.
We had a triumphant Indiana Youth and Government™ (INYaG) conference in Indy this year. Three of our delegates came home with several awards: Max Salazar-Outstanding Representative; Jack Huber-Outstanding INYaG Delegate who also received a trip to the YMCA Youth Conference on National Affairs (CONA) this summer; Elena Polizotto received an Honor Chord for participating in the program for 4 consecutive years, and one of our delegates; Donovan Ruiz will be Speaker of the House next year. A job well done to all!!
Congratulations to all of the 2019 Graduates – Best wishes for you and your next adventure!
Learn More About Youth and Government™
Youth and Government™ is a national program of the Y that involves thousands of teens nationwide in state-organized, model-government programs. Students from every corner of the U.S. have the opportunity to immerse themselves in experiential civic engagement and to, quite literally, practice democracy. Teens from across every state meet in their local Youth and Government™ groups throughout the year to discuss and debate issues that affect citizens of their state and to propose legislation. The program culminates with teens serving as delegates at their state conference, debating bills on the floor of the legislature.
