Michigan Youth in Government (YIG) is a comprehensive program that teaches state governmental process in a fun, interactive, and exciting way. Participants learn about bill writing, parliamentary procedure, current issues facing the State of Michigan, and much more. Over the course of regular meetings, participants put their knowledge into practice through frequent debates. The YIG program culminates in a two-day conference at the State Capitol in Lansing, where participants take part in mock committees and legislative sessions in House and Senate chambers. Through separate middle school and high school programs, Michigan Youth in Government offers participants a chance to learn and apply their skills in age-appropriate settings.
