YIG & the YMCA

The local YMCA is responsible to each local Chapter in a number of ways, and by affiliating with a YIG Chapter agrees to:

  • Provide screening and training necessary for advisors as YMCA volunteers
  • Act as your link to the State office – share communications with the local Chapters and assist in getting answers to questions
  • Provide a support system and back-up in the day-to-day Chapter operation and advising duties
  • Provide resources for team building and leadership development
  • Provide opportunities for service projects and community involvement
  • Provide assistance with service projects or fundraising efforts – ensuring that no students are excluded due to their financial standing. 
  • Assist in organizing transportation and/or lodging for District Conference, State Assembly, and events.
  • Assist with the removal and/or discipline of delegates/advisors expelled by Youth In Government – within the guidelines set forth by the State Office and local Chapters.
