Youth programs play a very important role in children’s lives today. Such programs allow youth to learn in different environments and promote knowledge as well as awareness. They also help youth to express themselves and their capabilities. One of these youth program called Youth in Government lets the younger generation learn about democracy and how each and every person can make a difference. The YIG helps children express their individuality through public speaking, giving them opportunities to develop their leadership skills as well as make new friends. It helps participants understand the democratic process. The YMCA YIG stands on the four major core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. There are YIG branches established throughout the United States and it is Malden’s first delegation. Although this is Malden’s first delegation, YIG has been running in Massachusetts for 29 years and currently consists of 200 members.
