Youth & Government
"Democracy must be learned by each generation" and is what Youth & Government is about. Youth & Government is a program in the United States that allows high school students to serve in model governments at a local, state, national, or international levels. It has been around since 1936 and has been growing ever since. Youth & Government gives students the opportunity to be in the shoes of Senators, or be a part of the House of Representatives. Students even have the opportunity to run for the Head of the House and the Head of the Senate, they can also run for Governor and other appointed positions.
We would like to thank the Ohio YMCA for sponsoring FHS in the Youth & Government program.
