Youth In Government

Youth & Government™ is a national program of the YMCA that involves thousands of teens nationwide in state-organized, model-government programs. The program culminates with teens serving as delegates at their state conference, debating bills on the floor of the legislature.  TCA is proud to have the only YIG program in Tipton County!  Youth & Government's mission is to help create the next generation of thoughtful, committed and active citizens by teaching them the principles of a democratic society.  Beginning in 6th grade, students may participate in the Youth In Government Club.  There is a Middle School conference and High School conference.

Middle School Faculty Advisor: Mr. Anthony Baird

High School Faculty Advisor: Mrs. Angela Williams

These students made school history at the 2021 conference. Their bill was signed into law by the governor!
