• The Government Club is an excellent opportunity for youth to get involved in parliamentary procedures. Each year, we participate in the Alabama YMCA Legislature which is procedurally designed so as to be a replica of the Alabama Legislature. It is a sound, educational approach to the development of citizen participation in the democratic government by providing opportunities to high school youth to study public government through a model legislative program. As members of the Government Club, we draft bills and bring them to the State Capital for consideration and debate. Thus, delegates to Youth Legislature attain an actual experience in the legislative process, and obtain a better understanding of the complexities of the legislative process and parliamentary procedure. The Government Club has the stability, experience, motivation and purpose necessary as an incubator for Youth Legislature participation, and our regimen of regular meetings lends itself to the study and discussion of public affairs.
