Youth & Government provides students with practical experience in the study of state government.

The highlight of the program is a trip to Sacramento in February where the students will preside over all aspects of the state government and have access to: the entire Capitol and Supreme Court Chambers including the Senate and Assembly floors, all governmental offices and the Governor’s personal suite, and all advocate and trial court chambers.
