24 Hours of YIG

We know that starting a YIG delegation is a big leap. Now, you can get a look at Model Assembly and find your next step!

What is this all about?

The opportunities for discovery and growth in Youth in Government are virtually limitless. Once you see the program in action, it becomes a lot easier to get a delegation started in your local area. This 24-hour experience of Model Assembly allows your future delegation leadership the opportunity to do just that. 

The experience will be noon on Saturday, January 6, to noon on Sunday, January 7. If you come, you will have the opportunity to see the program at both the Capitol Complex as well as at the hotel and your students will even get some hands-on time in the program. In addition, you will get to experience dinner in the Skyways first hand as well as participating in the evening activities.
