CampbellIn the spring of each year, participants of our Jr. YIG program may attend the Junior Assembly. Assembly delegates take on the role of state Senators or Representatives as they guide their own ideas (in the form of legislation) through the YIG’s model legislative process.

While staying in villas, delegates will work with High School Mentors, Adult and Graduate Advisors, and Y-Staff on concepts varying from public speaking to civic responsibility.

Coupled with a healthy dose of leadership development and the core values (caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility), the Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday experience provides these delegates with a glimpse of what awaits them in high school.

At past Jr. Assemblies, delegates from various chapters proposed bills on the following.

  • Gun Safety Education in Florida
  • Rehabilitation Housing in Florida for Homeless Veterans
  • Mandatory Automobile Inspections
  • Landfill Regulations in Florida
  • BMI Index Reported on School Report Cards
  • Punishments for Sexual Offenders 
  • Offshore Drilling Subsidies 
  • Motorcycle Helmets
