About Youth In Government
Middletown High School Youth-in-Government club teaches students to learn basic functions of county- and state-level government. Students participate in mock conventions, student run elections and also shadow government officials in local and state levels of government. County Service Day is the culmination of many students' endless hours of work toward the goal of a better understanding of our governmental processes. Student winners of the mock state-level positions meet with New York State Representatives and Senators for a tour of the state Capitol Building. Students learn to be confident public speakers. Students also gain valuable experiences in goal-oriented, collaborative professional environments.
