Youth In Government

Youth in Government (YIG) offers model legislative and judicial experiences for youth in grades 6 –12. Teens meet in their local delegations to discuss and debate issues that affect citizens of Delaware. The program culminates with the teens taking over Dover, Delaware for a 3-day model Legislative and Judicial Conference held annually at Legislative Hall and The Kent County Court House. Delegates learn by doing, and have the opportunity to try their hand at leadership in an open and receptive learning environment.

Weekly meetings begin in December and will continue leading up to the 1-day Training and Elections Conference scheduled for early March and the Model Legislative and Judicial conferences in early April 2017, both taking place in Dover, DE at Legislative Hall & the Kent County Court House.
