‘To be empowered, speak up and become the leaders of today, tomorrow and the future!’
What is Youth & Government
YMCA Youth & Government (Y&G) nurtures the potential of young people to lead, learn and connect to their community and be advocates for causes which they are passionate. The program empowers young people especially those who wouldn’t normally get the opportunity, to voice their ideas, passions and experiences in a parliamentary format in order to propose positive change for their futures.
