How to get involved

Whether you are an educator or a teen advocate, YMCA NC Youth & Government has programs that can engage 6th-12th grade students in your community. Middle School United Nations (MSUN) is a program that affords students the chance to simulate international government, while the High School Youth Legislature provides students the opportunity to participate in mock state government. Either way, students are guaranteed to learn and grow as leaders in their communities and beyond.

As an advisor these are just a few of the benefits:

  • Spend time with students and create an environment of learning.
  • Build healthy, positive relationships with students.
  • Work closely with a small group creating an opportunity to educate and nurture potential. Clubs must adhere to a 1:12 advisor to student ratio for all functions, including club meetings
