The State YMCA of Pennsylvania runs the Pennsylvania Youth & Government Program for high school and middle school students from across the state. YMCA Youth & Government is the only student-led, student-run, mock government experience of its kind in Pennsylvania. Each year, the State YMCA teaches democracy to hundreds of middle and high school students through hands-on experiences in the chambers of the Pennsylvania Capitol.
