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.

Middle School students will have the chance to learn about the legislative process, debate, parliamentary procedure, and work with students from across the state to develop solutions to problems they see facing Delaware. The conference will take place in November.
