California YMCA Youth & Government Kicks Off Alumni Association
On February 17th during the 69th Model Legislature & Court, over 70 individuals joined together to kick off the California YMCA Youth & Government Alumni Association- and it could not have been more of a success! Y&G drew alumni from as far away as Idaho and San Diego. Participants ranged from as many as 50 years of Y&G experience to young volunteers and interns.
Highlights of the evening included remarks from long-time directors Bud and Pam Sheble. There were reunions going on all around the room as people saw old friends and made new ones. And there were stories, lots of stories, about how Y&G had changed people’s lives.
The evening was such a success that we will be holding the California YMCA Youth & Government Alumni Association Kickoff (Part II) on May 5th in Los Angeles in conjunction with our Model United Nations Program. With so many of our alumni residing in Southern California we hope to have a very large turnout.
