Youth Legislature, a program in existence for more than 35 years, promotes and encourages youth leadership, participation, cooperation and teamwork among peers. The event gives students the confidence they need to go on to participate in leadership roles in high school and in their community.

Youth Legislature is a middle school program that introduces students to the legislative process. They receive classroom instruction and participate in a two-day mock legislative session at the Old State Capitol. Students will elect a Governor and House and Senate officers. They also sponsor, debate, pass and fail bills which they have drafted. They lead and serve on legislative committees and speak publicly before an audience.

Currently, more than 40 schools from ten parishes participate in Youth Legislature. More than 1,800 students participate in the mock legislative process over a period of eight weeks.

Youth Legislature would like to thank the Secretary of State, Tom Schedler, for his ongoing support of this invaluable program. There are sponsorship opportunities available to those interested in supporting Youth Legislature.
