New Jersey Youth And Government

Get involved. Stay engaged.

With over 500 students from 26 different schools and branches of the YMCA, New Jersey Youth & Government is driven by its commitment to civic engagement. Each year, students come together to build and run their own legislative chambers, courts, lobby firms, response committees, and press initiatives. At YAG, delegates gain and develop the tools, perspectives, and community to take initiative wherever it leads.
