YouthCity Government involves teens in state-organized, model-government programs. YouthCity Government provides the education, the problem-solving experience, and the social arena for Utah’s future leaders to develop and strengthen their skills and confidence to better serve their communities.

YouthCity Government program develops and promotes:
  • An understanding of local, state, national and international concerns
  • Research, study and debate on public issues
  • Exploration of careers in public service
  • Interaction with adult and youth leaders involved in decision-making processes
  • An understanding of political systems and the forum they provide for effective and peaceful resolution of issues and concerns
  • Appreciation for the diversity of viewpoints on public issues and a concurrent respect for ideas, beliefs and the positions of others
  • Demonstration of citizenship responsibilities and leadership roles essential to the health of a participatory democracy.
