Welcome to Youth In Governance 2022!

Alaska 4-H Youth in Governance (aka "YIG" ) offers 4-H teens the opportunity to gain a better understanding of how government works while having a fun time with other Youth from around the state. The focus is on Alaska's state government primarily, with the opportunity to extend activities to include local governments and tribal governments. As part of Alaskan YIG, participants will also learn about opportunities to head out of the state to our other parts of our nation to learn more about how our government works.

YIG 2022 is open to all Alaskan youth ages 14-18 during this school year. Youth do not have to be currently 4-H members, but will need to sign up to join the fun :)

If you have any questions, please contact Marla Lowder
