2018 Young Assemblymembers Program
The Young Assemblymembers Program is a four-week long program which is open to 10th, 11th and 12th grade students entering the 2018-2019 school year. The program has been created to provide students that reside in California’s 9th Assembly District with an opportunity to develop skills in leadership, team building and problem solving, and to understand the importance of college and career preparation, civic participation and the legislative process.
The four-week long program is free of charge. The program offers workshops on leadership development, community service, and levels of government. Students will participate in an initial two-day leadership development training to sharpen and learn leadership skills. At the end of the four weeks the participants will be able to effectively communicate with others, have knowledge of community-based organizations and local government, while also possessing knowledge of the legislative process and the workings of the California State Legislature. These students will be able to refer to their time with the program as work and volunteer experience.
The program aims to spark an interest in these young adults to become active in their communities and take part in the democratic process by providing them with important information.
The Young Assemblymembers Program schedule is every Tuesday and Thursday from July 10th to August 2nd from 2pm to 5pm, and will take place at the State Capitol and one day at Elk Grove City Hall.
