Model Legislature & Court
High School / 9th-12th Graders
The YMCA is a cause-driven organization that focuses on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. California YMCA Youth & Government is an integral part of the YMCA movement and has been providing service to local YMCAs for 70 years. We now engage close to 5,000 high school and middle school youth from across the state each year, in programs emphasizing civic engagement.
The program is designed to provide its participants with life skills necessary for their future careers, whether they are involved with legislature, court, or any other professional field. This dynamic program also focuses on building friendships, socializing, and having fun! During each conference delegates will have a chance to hangout with friends, attend dances, play games, and create new friendships that will last a lifetime.

Model United Nations
Middle School / 6th-8th Graders
The Model United Nations program provides teen members and adult leaders with a greater appreciation for our global community through hands-on involvement with international issues and solutions. The culminating conference, the General Assembly, is geared toward developing teen members’ international consciousness through role play as they represent one of the members of the United Nations. No prior knowledge of international affairs or public speaking is necessary. A desire to learn new things, have new adventures, and meet new friends is mandatory!
The Santa Monica Delegation meets weekly January to April. To find out more about the program, please contact Erika Altshule, Program Leader at email@example.com or (310)393-2721, ext. 123.
