Welcome to the YMCA


The Virginia Y is a statewide educational organization promoting leadership and civic engagement for teenagers in the Commonwealth. For over 65 years, students have participated in programs such as the Model General Assembly, Model Judicial Program, Hi-Y/Tri-Hi-Y/Youth & Government Clubs, and the Williamsburg program. These programs provide opportunities for students to become leaders and see first-hand the inner workings of the state government. Contact us to get involved!!

"As a teacher, I constantly look for ways to engage my students in the class material and I have found no greater way of engaging them than the realistic simulations of Virginia government offered by the Virginia YMCA.  Every time I take students to participate in the Model Judiciary or Model General Assembly, they come back energized by a desire to continue to participate in government functions even after they graduate from high school."

-Mark Mingee, advisor & board member
