Youth and Government: Information Session
The Town of Southampton Youth Bureau will be co-sponsoring a new program called “Youth and Government” through the Alliance of NYS YMCAs. Youth & Government is a national program that involves teens nationwide in state-organized, model-government programs. Students in grades 9 – 12 will have the opportunity to practice experiential civic engagement and learn about the democratic process. Youth will discuss and debate issues that affect citizens of New York State and will get a chance to deliberate in the chambers of the NYS Legislature at a state conference in Albany.
The Southampton Youth Bureau’s Youth & Government program will meet on Wednesdays from 6:00pm – 7:30pm, location TBA. Interested in joining? Attend an information session on Wednesday, September 26th from 6:00pm – 7:00pm in the Town Board Meeting Room at Southampton Town Hall, 116 Hampton Road to learn more! For more information, please call (631) 702-2425 or Councilman Tommy John Schiavoni at (631) 287-5745.
