Feb. 3, 2018 Podcast: “The kids are in the House…and Senate.”

We are back!!!  Freshly retooled and eager to bring you great information, perspective and opportunities to make a difference in your community.

On today’s episode, we interview two local teachers who’ve taken educating our youth beyond the text book; putting the lessons learned in the class room to practical use with the help of the YMCA.

Katherine King and Jeni Enjaian of Lakeview Middle School brought the YCMA’s Youth In Government to Lakeview Middle School last year.  The program has high school and middle school students experiencing how our state government works up close and personal by having them act as state representatives and senators; drafting legislation, presenting bills in each Chamber of the State House, debating the various bills, voting on legislation they support and sometimes having their legislation signed by the Youth In Government Governor.

Katherine and Jeni explain how Youth In Government works and share the amazing journey their own students experienced.  It’s a story that will bring a smile to your face and give you a greater appreciation for our state’s great teachers.
