Montgomery Youth in City Government
Montgomery’s Youth in City Program is the oldest in the state. The Optimist Club of the Capital City, in cooperation with the Britton YMCA, sponsors Youth in City as a part of Optimist International Youth Appreciation Week. Students in grades 7-12 from all over the city gather in City Hall for a day to debate the city ordinances they prepared. This program is very similar to Youth Legislature, except it is on a citywide level rather than a statewide level. Officers are elected at the opening meeting, held on a weeknight prior to Youth In City. A Youth Mayor and 8 City Councilmen preside over the day. The day includes debating, remarks from city officials, the Youth Mayor’s election and a fantastic lunch. It is an important learning experience for all youth to have.
