Youth Legislature Lobbyist Program Application
The YMCA Youth Legislature Lobbyist program is a wonderful way for students to advocate for legislation that they are passionate about. The student Lobbyist work to persuade delegates to support, change, or oppose Bills.

Lobbyists are people who are hired by companies to act as liaisons between other companies and the governors office to form positive relationships and influence legislatures to vote for or against a bill depending on how it would affect the company they were hired by.

Anyone who would like the opportunity to lobby on multiple bills during the Youth Legislature Conference, while fostering relationships with various delegates from around the state would do well in the program. You are not required to have any prior lobbying experience, just the will to learn.
