For three days in May over 500 student participants from around the state take over the Capitol and run a mock legislative session. In order to ensure all students, regardless of their financial situation, are able to participate in the Youth Legislature Program, YMCA Youth & Government offers opportunities for local families to host students during their stay in Olympia. This eliminates the cost of expensive hotel stays and offers a unique experience for volunteers and participants alike.
Could you host one or more students, during the mock legislature, May 6-9, 2009?
Volunteering as a Host Family during the YMCA Youth Legislature is a great opportunity to:
- Meet involved and motivated students from around Washington.
- Support the future of your community by supporting your future leaders.
- Be part of the democratic process by contributing to the education of our state’s youth.
For more information, or to volunteer as a host family, please call Sarah LaGrange, Americorps Volunteer Coordinator, at 360-357-3475 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
