Review for California YMCA Youth & Government, Sacramento, CA, USA
So often are high school students told or led to believe that a sense of spirit can only be fostered through competition. Yet this program proves that such conviviality stems from a sense of mutual passion. California YMCA Youth & Government (Y&G) has completely changed my life. Besides serving as a means for me to find my passion in politics, Y&G acted as the catalyst for my becoming a confident young adult. As a member of this program, I discovered that people are not always united by common opponents, but instead by a mutual goals and desire to make each other "better." Whether this means being a better speaker, a better debater, a better writer, or just a better person, Y&G annually unites thousands of young people under the simple goal of becoming "better."
I 100% attribute my enjoyment of high school, to Y&G. If it weren't for this program, I would not have the confidence to set my goals so high or the friends to tell me I can accomplish such aspirations. If it weren't for Y&G, I would not have had first-hand experience working in the state courthouse, senate and assembly chambers, and even the governor's office. If it weren't for Y&G, I would not be the person I am today.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
extend the program season and set the program's sights to the international field.
