Follow these steps to discover the easiest and best way to get involved with Youth in Government. Please contact the State Office if you have any questions in this process.
Step 1: Find the Program for You
Minnesota YMCA Youth in Government has four different programs. Only two of them (Model Assembly and Model United Nations) require you to be in a delegation to participate. If you are interested in the Conference on National Affairs or the National Judicial Competition, please skip to Step 3. Please note that participation in the Conference on National Affairs or the National Judicial Competition requires you to participate in either Model Assembly or Model United Nations during the previous school year.
A delegation is a group of students from the same area or school that work together to prepare for Model Assembly or Model United Nations. Please use our delegation finder to see if there is a delegation already operating near you. If so, click the pin for contact information for that delegation director.
If there are not any active delegations near to you or if you would like to participate in a program that is not delegation-based, get in touch with the YIG State Office. We can help you work with a local YMCA or school to begin a delegation or provide you with registration materials for one of the other programs.
