Engage Sunday with Judy Harris- Instilling Civic Values in Young People
“We all have a responsibility and a role to ensure that young people are prepared to contribute to the civic and political lives of their communities,” says Amy Anderson, YMCA Executive Director of the Center for Youth Voice in MN. In early Jan. 2022, Youth Voice in MN spent a weekend with 825 young people, providing rooms in a near-by hotel and a mock legislative session in the MN State Capitol. Students from all “backgrounds and ideologies” can engage in year-round programming that is “radically non-partisan.” The League of Women Voters WI first session in WI will be March 3 and 4th, 2022, in Madison. Join us as we watch the video of Amy’s presentation and discuss how programs like this help young adults understand our governmental processes and the importance of voting.
