The purpose of Youth in Government is to expose students to the political process while helping to educate them about issues our society faces. It is a county- wide organization that receives strong support from the Orange County Legislature and elected state officials. At two separate conventions, students get the opportunity to informally debate issues with other schools then run for a variety of offices.
