Model Legislature & Court

The Youth & Government Model Legislature & Court program builds leadership skills through civic engagement activities.  Our delegations focus on communication, service-learning, fundraising, and professionalism while learning California's State government and court systems.  As a community, we make our voices heard at three (3) state-wide conferences where we engage new friends with similar and different ideas.

Our delegations focus their energy on three (3) areas with Experiential Learning at is core.
