Illinois YMCA Youth and  Government can not exist without our student participants and advisors, our alumni, and our VOLUNTEERS!

Our volunteers assist at the Pre-Legislative Sessions, at Assembly, and with our virtual programming. Whatever your career is, or where you are in the state, we can connect you with an area. Please contact the Youth and Government office for more information!

If you are unfamiliar with our mission and what we do, please look at our social media and You Tube Channel. Words and pictures don’t do justice to what an awesome job our teens do in their roles, and hopefully the impact it makes for them and their future.

If you have helped out before and are able to again this year – thank you! Please register for this year and we will be in touch soon!
