Who are the Junior Legislators?

Since 2010, the New Jersey Youth and Government Program has invited middle school students to build a legislative experience of their own. Junior Legislators lead one another as they learn to write bills and have thoughtful, respectful, and exciting discussions about current issues. Collaboration and community help all delegates to create a powerful, empowering experience.
